Connectivity and Wireless

The connectivity and wireless features introduce how you can manage wireless connections to other devices and networks. They also describe how you can download content, and send and receive data in your application.

You can use the following connectivity and wireless features in your .NET applications:

  • Connection Management

    You can get information about the connected network, and set up and configure network and socket connections. You can also track connection information, such as the size of the sent and received data.

  • WebView

    You can access web pages and web content in your application using the WebView functionality. You can also use various other features for Web browsing, such as loading and displaying web pages, and navigating through the browsing history.

  • Bluetooth

    You can use Bluetooth functionalities in your application, such as managing the Bluetooth service, pairing, and exchanging messages. The Bluetooth standard provides a peer-to-peer (P2P) data exchange functionality over short distance between compliant devices.

  • Near Field Communication (NFC)

    You can share contacts, photos, and videos, use the device as a smart card, and communicate with other NFC-enabled devices. You can use an NFC-enabled device to communicate with NFC tags for a variety of activities, such as paying the grocery bill or downloading a coupon.

  • Smart Card

    You can use smart card functionalities to access secure elements. You can open a channel to the secure element, send a command, and receive a response.

  • Wi-Fi

    You can connect to a Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) and transfer data over the network. You can activate and deactivate a local Wi-Fi device, and to connect to a WLAN network in the infrastructure mode.

  • Wi-Fi Direct®

    You can find nearby Wi-Fi Direct devices and discover their details. You can also form a Wi-Fi Direct group to communicate over a peer-to-peer link without wireless access points (base stations) in the infrastructure mode.

  • Smart Traffic Control (STC)

    You can retrieve statistics about the network data consumption fetched by the system and by the applications.

  • Telephony Information

    You can access various information from the Telephony Service. You can access details about the voice and video call states, currently used SIM card, and modem. You can also retrieve general details about the telephony network the device is currently connected to.

  • IoT Connectivity

    You can use IoTivity features in Tizen. You can use the seamless device-to-device connectivity to address the needs of the Internet of Things (IoT) through the open source reference implementation of the OIC (Open Interconnect Consortium) standard specifications.

  • Network Service Discovery

    You can perform network service discoveries to announce local services and search for remote services.
