    A personal network is an overlay network which builds on different wireless networking technologies. This overlay network is responsible of glueing the different wireless networking technologies. In this paper, we consider the cooperation of two key technologies te realize a personal network, namely, Wireless Personal Area Network and Universal Mobile Telecommunications Systems (UMTS). The co-operation poses a new set of problems as these technologies were not designed to intework with each other. In this paper, we describe each of these problems and their solutions.
