Qualcomm today announced a new type of peer-to-peer network technology that will allow cell phones to find one another and share information at broadband speeds without the need for a network to connect them. The technology, called FlashLinq, uses TDD OFDMA on licensed spectrum (must be carrier approved) to connect the devices. Phones with FlashLin could find and connect to thousands of nearby FlashLinq-equipped phones (within 1km) and share information back and forth. FlashLinq can also use the macro cellular network to share a broadband connection among the devices. Because the devices need to be local to connect, they can be used for new types of "neighborhood-area network" applications and services. SK Telecom in Korea is going to trial the technology first.
