PAN
Last modified: Thursday, February 21, 2002 

Based on the electric-field transmission medium, Personal Area Network is an IBM technology that allows individuals to exchange data with a simple touch or grasp, such as a handshake.

A PAN user is equipped with a receiver and a transmitter, which constantly sends infinitesimal data-carrying currents -- in the 0.1-1 MHz band -- through the body and picks up currents when in very close range with another device or individual carrying a transmitter.
