This paper focuses on communication in personal area networks. A personal area networks (PAN) is characterized as an informal collection, or community, of connected small, lightweight, and resource-lean devices, or gadgets. Two basic concepts are visible in the development of PANs, the distributed and the centralized concept. The paper introduces a real-time communication protocol that is suitable for both concepts. The communication protocol can deal with several types of traffic: real-time or nonreal- time, bursty or isochronous, high or low bitrate. The protocol is undemanding in terms of resources, so even simple devices can participate in the network. The network is simulated and a prototype is realized.
