Negotiated Group Owner
In the NGO mode, also called Negotiation-based Group Creation, two devices compete based on the group owner intent value. The device with higher intent value becomes a group owner and the second device becomes a client. Once the two P2P devices have found each other, they start the Group Owner (GO) Negotiation phase. This is implemented using a three-way handshake, namely, GO negotiation. Request/Response/Confirmation, whereby the two devices agree on which device will act as P2P GO and on the channel where the group will operate, which can be in the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz bands.
