ABSTRACT
One negative aspect that is commonly overlooked regarding communication between devices is when there is limited access to a network. This project will investigate multiple technologies including Bluetooth and Wi-Fi Peer-to-Peer in order to allow for communication between devices without a network. The application I created utilizes Bluetooth in an effort to create a peer-to-peer network. Additionally, it enhances the limited capabilities of Bluetooth by extending the range of its network. The results for this project have been successfully obtained through the creation of an Android application that demonstrates an interconnected network. This project provides a messaging application that uses Bluetooth to create a peer-to-peer network allowing multiple devices to communicate with one another. In conclusion, the application is one of many solutions towards solving communication between multiple devices when there is limited connectivity to the network.
