DATA TRANSFER AMONG WIRELESS MOBILE DEVICES USING INFRARED COMMUNICATION Jasmina Bujaroska 1 , Ace Dimitrievski 2 , Slobodan Kalajdziski 2 , Danco Davcev 2 1 Cosmofon, Mobile Telecommunication Services - Skopje , [email protected] 2 Faculty of Electrical Engineering - Skopje , Karpos II b.b , P.O.Box 574, 1000 Skopje , {ace, skalaj, [email protected] Abstract - Wireless and mobile communications are one of the fastest growing areas of modern life. It has an enormous impact on almost every aspect of our daily lives. A world of ubiquitous wireless devices is emerging, from wireless sensors and tags to mobile terminals. In this paper we are exploring the Infrared communication, its protocols and services. Further we have developed two simple applications that exchange data via infrared communication link, and we have briefly explain the idea behind the Microsoft mobile platform that we used as our development platform. This paper covers the main details of the analysis, design and deployment processes. Keywords IrDA, wireless, mobile, .NET CF. 1. INTRODUCTION The mobile and wireless industry is entering an exciting time. Demand for mobile technology is growing at a tremendous rate. Corporations are deploying mobile applications that provide substantial business benefits, and consumers are readily adopting mobile data applications. Exciting new mobile devices are constantly being introduced, and wireless networks are providing access to data from almost anywhere. In short, mobile and wireless technology has matured to the point where it is ready for wide-scale adoption. With the vast number of mobile devices and network connectivity options, it is important to select a software platform that will work effectively with other parts of the solution. This may involve having the ability to create wireless Internet applications using a variety of markup languages, having a persistent datastore with synchronization capabilities, or having mobile messaging services [1]. Based on the application being developed and which devices it is going to be deployed to, there may be a preference for the server platform that is being used. Is a Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) platform best suited for your environment? Or is a .NET solution from Microsoft a better choice? For the application on the device, does it have to have offline capabilities or is a WAP online solution acceptable? Each platform has its strengths and weaknesses. For the development of our solution we’ve chosen Microsoft .NET Compact Framework and Visual Studio .NET as a development tool, those will be described later in this paper. 2. INFRARED DATA ASSOCIATION Infrared Data Association, a multifaceted term commonly referred to as IrDA, can be described as: a protocol suite designed to provide wireless, walk-up, line-of-sight connectivity between devices; the semi- transparent red window found on many laptops and some desktop computers; an organization that creates, promotes, and standardizes IrDA [4]. IrDA is uniquely suited to wireless point-to-point
