My Personal Adaptive Global NET and Beyond



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 partners. 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 future.
