1 Personal Networks and Their Federations Bernard Hammer TC32 chair Ecma/GA/2008/243

2 Rue du Rhône CH-1204 Geneva - T: F: From Personal Area Networks to Personal Networks Personal Area Network (PAN) Network connecting devices in the close vicinity of a person/personal entity local scope Personal Network (PN) Overlay network on network infrastructure in reach connecting devices of a person/private entity independent of their location User centred Secure and trustworthy Virtual vicinity of local and remote devices Self-organisation of network connections Heterogeneity of technologies Some Predictions By 2010: 40 percent of all potentially networkable electronic or electromechanical devices will be connected (Harbor) 1000 wireless devices/person by 2017 (WWRF)

3 Rue du Rhône CH-1204 Geneva - T: F: Personal Networks Network Infrastructure

4 Rue du Rhône CH-1204 Geneva - T: F: Three Abstraction Levels of Personal Networks

5 Rue du Rhône CH-1204 Geneva - T: F: Federations of Personal Networks

6 Rue du Rhône CH-1204 Geneva - T: F: Ecma TC32 activities on Personal Networks Decision to start a TC32 Editor Group on Personal Networks and their Federations (PNF) in August 2008 Chartered to produce four Technical Reports on analysing standardization needs: Umbrella TR, editor E. Onur, TU Delft Networking TR, editor M. Jacobsson, TU Delft Enabling Services TR, editor tbd, Federations.TR, editor tbd Collaboration with TC32-TG17 (IP-based Communications) Involved companies/organisations: TU Delft, IBBT, CSEM, TNO, SEN

7 Rue du Rhône CH-1204 Geneva - T: F: Thanks for your attention Questions? Contact; Dr. Bernard Hammer Siemens Enterprise Communications

8 Rue du Rhône CH-1204 Geneva - T: F: Supplementary Information

9 Rue du Rhône CH-1204 Geneva - T: F: Need for PN&F Environment of potentially wireless connected mobile equipment around the use, ever increasing and very dynamic in nature User having with-me and not-with-me, at home, in the car, in the office, in the 2nd home... Need for a simple and secure way of sharing resources with colleagues, business partners, friends, family members, etc.

10 Rue du Rhône CH-1204 Geneva - T: F: What PN&F provides PN brings the with-me and not-with-me together (when physically and economically possible) PN handles the dynamic aspects of the local and non local devices, and presents an abstracted simplified image to the outside world (a complex terminal with fixed and variable capabilities) PN Federation provide a simple and secure method to share resources with a given user or group of users

11 Rue du Rhône CH-1204 Geneva - T: F: PN&F relevance and the relation with service providers The PN can provide to a service provider a stable abstraction with a defined quality of service, that allows the service provider a simpler and more stable working environment than the dynamic user and or home network environment The PN provides to a telecom service provider in addition the possibilities to provide services like: Interconnection of PN clusters Management Data and/or network back/up services The PN can be for the mobile environment what the combination of router (with NAT) - LAN/Wireless-LAN has done for xDSL: the connection of simple home networks PN includes peer-to-peer networking within the PN, Federation adds secured peer-to-peer networking across PNs

12 Rue du Rhône CH-1204 Geneva - T: F: PN&F applications in the eHealth domain BAN architecture (body area network with sensors and device taking on gateway function) Near person networks, e.g. for tele-monitoring Organisation of home network infrastructure with overlay(s) for eHealth applications eHealth / eWellness applications

13 Rue du Rhône CH-1204 Geneva - T: F: Federation = cooperation of a set of independent networks under mutually agreed rules for cooperation Overall authority only for the time and purpose of the federation. Examples: Sharing personal resources Emergency networks Virtual meeting Virtual education Use of a subset of the total resources Driven by purpose or by opportunity Full ad hoc or with support from infrastructure Federations of PNs

14 Rue du Rhône CH-1204 Geneva - T: F: Abstraction of Network Components

15 Rue du Rhône CH-1204 Geneva - T: F: Projects on PNs and Federations PNP2008 (TU Delft, Dutch Freeband) Investigation of link, networking and service layer solutions Security and biometrics User aspects Role of PN provider Demonstrators and pilot MAGNET and MAGNET-Beyond (EU FP6) European FP6 IP project Broad spectrum of PN research issues (radio, network, platforms, security, user aspects) QoS for Personal Networks at Home Dutch IOP project QoS issues in personal networks
