The computer network implementation of MIDI provides network routing capabilities, and provides the high-bandwidth channel that earlier alternatives to MIDI, such as ZIPI, were intended to bring. Proprietary implementations have existed since the 1980s, some of which use fiber optic cables for transmission.:53-4 The Internet Engineering Task Force's RTP MIDI open specification is gaining industry support, as proprietary MIDI/IP protocols require expensive licensing fees, or provide no advantage, apart from speed, over the original MIDI protocol. Apple has supported this protocol from Mac OS X 10.4 onwards, and a Windows driver based on Apple's implementation exists for Windows XP and newer versions.Systems for wireless MIDI transmission have been available since the 1980s.:44 Several commercially available transmitters allow wireless transmission of MIDI and OSC signals over Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. iOS devices are able to function as MIDI control surfaces, using Wi-Fi and OSC. An XBee radio can be used to build a wireless MIDI transceiver as a do-it-yourself project.
