    Description

    WING In 2001 the WING group began a new activities in short-range networking area focused on wireless personal area networks (WPAN). WPAN is expected to be an important tool in the IP based 4G solutions that will provide users with seamless data and multimedia communication changing their personal and business environment. WPAN presents the person centered network concept, which allows a person to move, surrounded by its personal space (PS) and devices, and to communicate with them and through them with the outside world. Realization of this dynamic wireless concept requires new solutions for architecture, protocols, relayed low power consumption technologies, security and management, assuming spontaneous ad-hoc connectivity. The aim is to build up expertise in networking aspects of WPAN and related issues such as ad-hoc networks. As a result of these initiated activities two project were proposed and accepted: PACWOMAN (IST project) and FACE (joint WING, CSys and SMC project). (Liljana Gavrilovska)
