What is MobileMAN?

The MobileMAN Project is a technological european research project that is part of the Framework Programme 5 - and more precisely of the Information Society Technologies group of activities.

It aims at developing a communication network that is mobile and ad hoc - that is, which is entirely made of users' devices. In such network, users devices are not only the "clients", but they also act as "servers" and "routers". To summarize, they consume but also provide services. Collaboration places a key role in the system to work.



This is a possible device type for the implementation of MobileMAN.

Other types are laptops or multi-functions cellular phones.
