    Abstract

    A personal network is a network architecture which builds on various wireless networking technologies. It is responsivle for glueing these wireless networking technologies to serve users. This paper considers the co-operation of several key technologies to serve users. This paper considers the co-operation of several key technologies to realize a personal network; namely Wireless Personal Area Network (WPAN). Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) and Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS). This co-operation poses a new set of problems as these technologies were not designed to interwork with each other. In this paper, we present an architectural framework on which one can build a personal network using these wireless technologies. We also discuss each of these problems and propose solutions toward building a personal network demonstrator
