    Personal Networks (PN) is a new concept related to pervasive computing with a strong user-focused view. While several existing technologies can offer solutions to part of a person's future communication needs, there is very little work on combining these technologies into something a normal user can handle. It will undoubtedly be the network layer that should integrate a person's all devices and networks into one single network for the person; the Personal Network. This paper introduces a network layer architecture for PNs that can handle the dynamic and demanding situation a PN is facing. Discussions of some related network layer concepts, issues and possible solutions are given in the end of this paper.
