Additional Information

The AJRouter service allows your computer to communicate with other devices that use the AllJoyn framework. AllJoyn is an open-source project that enables interoperability among devices across different platforms and operating systems. It is part of the Internet of Things (IoT) initiative, which aims to connect various smart devices and enable them to exchange information and collaborate.

The AJRouter service is not essential for Windows, but it can be useful if you have other IoT-enabled devices in your home or network, such as smart speakers, lights, thermostats, cameras, etc. The service acts as a router that routes AllJoyn messages for the local AllJoyn clients.
