A personal area network is a network that connects multiple devices for the use of a single user. The following are illustrative examples.
Body Area NetworkA mobile network that moves with a person. For example, a person establishes a network connection with a smart phone and then creates a network to share that connection with other devices such as a tablet.
Offline NetworkA home network designed to integrate devices such as printers, computers, televisions, data storage and appliances that isn't connected to the internet. A network used by an entire family is considered a local area network.
Small Home OfficeA home office is set up with its own network that is separate from the network used by other devices in the home. This network is used to connect a variety of devices to the internet and to a corporate network using a VPN.
