    Project Details


    The MAGNET (My personal Adaptive Global NET) project has a vision related to Personal Networks and the support these will offers users' in both professional and private environments, without being obtrusive and while safeguarding privacy and security. Personal Network will operate on top of any number of networks that exist for subscriber services or are composed in an ad-hoc manner. These networks are dynamic and diverse in composition, configuration and connectivity depending on time, place, preference and context, as well as available resources.

    As the name implies MAGNET has a very strong emphasis on user-centricity, personalization, adaptation, interoperability and interconnection of heterogeneous networks. This user-centric approach is called for, due to the widely accepted fact, that future applications and services need to be developed with the users' in the driver's seat and in equal pace with the corresponding core- and radio networks.

    The goal of the MAGNET project is to enable commercially viable Personal Networks that are affordable, user-friendly and beneficial to all kinds of users in all aspects of their everyday life. Furthermore the MAGNET project adopts a system approach that is expected to be one of the most important telecom-related growth markets of the future: Personal Area Networks. However, MAGNET does not treat Personal Area Networks in isolation: the concept is extended into that of a Personal Network by interconnecting Personal Area Networks via wirelessly accessed wide area networks (WANs). In addition to this, the MAGNET project builds upon significant advances in peer-to-peer networking, inter-working between different networking technologies, wireless technologies for Personal Networks and security aspects. Overall the MAGNET project is based on a techno and socio-economic perspective regarding future user requirements and business opportunities.
