Creating a Digital 6th Sense with LTE Direct

Mobile has revolutionized computing and the internet. So, what is next for mobile services? Proximal discovery is empowering the next generation of mobile services, creating a digital 6th sense through always-on awareness of friends, services, events, and other relevant value in one’s proximity. LTE Direct is an innovative device-to-device technology for proximal discovery that is required to scale up from today's existing location-based and proximity beacon solutions. LTE Direct is creating a digital 6th sense by providing privacy sensitive and battery efficient discovery of 1000s of devices in ~500m proximity.
