Infrared wireless communication has already proven to be commercial success in the Television (TV) and Video Cassette Recorder (VCR) remote markets and is poised to become a key technology in a number of business markets. Over the next few years, we may witness an explosive growth of Infrared based "walk-up" data access and seamless indoor mobile data networking. The protocol architecture proposed by Infrared Data Association (IrDA), a non-profit organization founded in the summer of 1993, is very rapidly emerging as an industry wide infrared standard for "walk-up", point-to-point communication The paper examines the IrDA protocol model and how the current printing model can be modified to work over the IrDA proposed protocol stack.
