    Abstract

    Personal Networks (PN) is a new concept related to pervasive computing with a strong user-focus view. The key to a successful PN realization is a general network architecture that is capable of bridging different current and future technologies and offers a homogeneous and clear view to the end-user. In this paper, we focus on forming a PN by connecting remote personal devices using infrastructure-based IP networks, including 3G networks and WLAN hotspots. One way is to upgrade the current access networks with new functionality to support PNs. Since many devices in PNs are mobile and battery powered, this may help them to achieve a faster service and to save energy. However, to deploy such functionality is not easy and may hamper the adoption of PNs altogether. Therefore, we propose an intra-PN communication architecture that will work over current IP networks. To discern the above proposal we also give a detailed picture of PN network architecture and infrastructure supported PNs. We believe that this will help the success of PNs.
