A last IPP meeting, I can see you discussed the topic 'IPP over other
transports'
and that Paul Moore metioned the infrared transport. In i-data we are working on
the new wireless technoligy BlueTooth. I think in a few years you will not
anymore
see the use of infrared soulutions anymore, but it will be BlueTooth. Ericsson,
Nokia
and the PDU's are going to implement BlueTooth in their products. In i-data we
are working on a LAN profile to Bluetooth as well as on a Printing Profile. Our
solution for printing over Bluetooth will be to use IPP over WAP. WAP is
implemented
in some mobil phones today, and will be widely spread by the years. WAP looks
like
a lot like HTTP. So I think it would be interesting to run IPP on the top of
WAP. You
would then be able to print from your PDA or mobil phone.
