MAGNET Beyond - My Personal Adaptive Global NET and Beyo



The MAGNET Beyond vision is to take the MAGNET vision of personal services
over Personal Networks a step closer to reality. The overall objective is to
*/design, develop, demonstrate and validate the concept of a flexible
Personal Network (PN) that supports resource-efficient, robust, ubiquitous
personal services in a secure, heterogeneous networking environment for
mobile users/*. A PN will support its owner in all his/her private and
professional activities and interactions, without being obtrusive and while
safeguarding the */security/* and */privacy/* of the users and their data.

In PNs, users interact with various companion-, embedded-, or invisible
computers not only in their close vicinity, but potentially anywhere. PNs
are configured in an ad-hoc fashion, as the opportunity and the demand arise
to support a person's private and professional applications. These
applications may run on a user's personal devices, but also on foreign
devices. A PN may operate in both /ad-hoc/ and /infrastructure-based/
networks and will be dynamic and diverse in composition, configuration and
connectivity depending on time, place and circumstances as well as resources
required, and last but not least preferred and/or needed co-operating

The MAGNET Beyond mission is to make MAGNET happen by enabling commercially
viable PNs that are attractive, affordable and beneficial for end-users in
their everyday life.

The MAGNET Beyond project constitutes a system approach to what is expected
to be one of the most important telecom related growth markets of the
