Assessing personal networks on a Pan-European testbed

Abstract : The development of new research paradigms is usually not supported by a proof-of-concept that helps to showcase the potential impact of the research concept behind. Personal Networking is an emerging concept which combines pervasive computing and strong user focus. The idea is that the user's personal devices organize themselves in a secure and private personal network transparently of their geographical location or the access technologies used. The user expects the network to be always ready for supporting his necessities without requiring too much involvement on her/his side. Additionally, the PN must be ready to share the services it provides to the user with other users that have been authorised in order to allow the collaboration between the PNs’ users. The PN Federation concept is presented as a secure cooperation between a subset of devices belonging to different PNs for the purpose of achieving a common goal or service by establishing an alliance. This paper presents the highlights of the implementation of a full-blown Personal Networking system carried out and the set up of a pan-European testbed where the system can be subject of functionality and performance tests as well as be used to demonstrate the potentiality of Personal Networking concept
