A.8 Use case: Combination of two PANs

22.2593GPPService requirements for Personal Network Management (PNM)Stage 1TS

Figure 13 and Figure 14 describe the PNM functionality on combination of two PANs. When PAN1 and PAN2 are physically close to each other, the user may hope to combine them into one PAN and designate UE1 as the new PAN’s UE. The PNM needs to deactivate UE2 and update relative registration information (binding tables and addresses) of UE1 and PNEs in PAN2. The PNEs in PAN2 (ME2 and TE2) may keep or change the original network positions, i.e. the connection to UE2 or UE1 (described as case 1 and case 2). After the combination UE2 and ME2 need to be authorized through UE1 to get access for any new service, and then they can access those services directly.
