Neighbor-Awareness Networking in Wi-Fi

Marvell is implementing support neighbor-awareness networking, or social Wi-fi, in its 802.11 silicon, enabling any nearby devices to connect in a peer-to-peer fashion, which can then engage in all sorts of shared applications.

The Wi-Fi is working on neighbor-awareness networking for smartphones, tablets, smart watches, without the need for an AP between them. It is also working on a Wi-fi Aware capability and Marvell's plans to certify its chipsets for this capability.
