A wireless personal area network (WPAN) is a personal, short distance area wireless network for interconnecting devices centered around an individual person’s workspace. WPANs address wireless networking and mobile computing devices such as PCs, PDAs, peripherals, cell phones, pagers and consumer electronics. WPANs are also called short wireless distance networks.
