Connectivity and Wireless

The connectivity and wireless features introduce how you can manage wireless connections to other devices and networks, including IoT connectivity. 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 Web applications:

  • Bluetooth in mobile and wearable applications only

    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.

  • 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.

  • Near Field Communication (NFC) in mobile and wearable applications only

    With 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.

  • Secure Element Access in mobile and wearable applications only

    You can access secure elements, such as a SIM card or a secure SD card, on a device.

  • Content Downloads

    You can download files from the Internet. You can also monitor the download progress to keep the user informed of the status.

  • Network Bearer Selection in mobile applications only

    You can request a preferred connection network type for a domain.
