    Abstract

    The goal of the Portable JANET trial programme is to be able to develop a portable and easily carried Wireless LAN kit (WLAN) that should provide local and global connectivity to the devices individuals carry during an academic outdoors study. In simple terms, local connectivity should be offered to devices in the form of a 802.11b/g wireless network and global connectivity should be offered by the portable WLAN kit with the aid of a backhaul connectivity option, such as a Satellite, 3G/UMTS or WiMAX link or by establishing its own connection to the Internet if that is feasible. In this report we describe the designed prototype of a Portable WLAN kit by Lancaster University that not only provides the best available connectivity option for outdoor academic and research studies, but also facilitates the mobility of end users by bringing the advantages of MANEMO to this challenging application domain.
