Dynamic and automatic connection of personal area networks to the global internet
In the Next Generation Networks (NGNs) users will carry multiple devices forming cooperative networks known as Personal Area Networks (PANs). Some existing technologies enable this type of networks, such as Bluetooth or IEEE 802.15.4, but a unified framework capable of self-organizing them dynamically in a full heterogeneous environment populated by these and other technologies still has to be defined. Also, these networks are envisioned to be connecting dynamically to the Internet, and may use two IP versions and their autoconfiguration mechanisms. In this paper we propose a new framework, the Autoconfiguration and Self-management of Personal Area Networks (ASPAN), which enables the automatic and dynamic deployment of PANs in the heterogeneous environments envisioned for NGNs and handles the automatic and dynamic connection of a PAN to the global Internet.
