ETSI SmartBAN defines the basic access of an ad hoc personal wireless network for wearables around the human body. SmartBAN provides a communication interface for such wearables and a monitoring station known as the hub. The Smart Coordinator (SC) represents the next step to bridge the monitoring station to infrastructure like Wi-Fi or the cellular network and adds support to other personal technologies like Bluetooth. Hence, the SC intends to support the following: Defining the converge function between the Service Access Point (SAP) of the Link layer (L2) of SmatBAN and the corresponding entity at the infrastructure side. Support of high reliability and dependable Quality of Service (QoS) across networks in the communication path by bridging via the Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) infrastructure. Definition of a vertical for 5G/6G that enables the monitoring of a wide range of personal applications, like health indicators for the elderly, patients, or average people. The SC intends to support coexistence support with other SmartBANs and other wireless systems operating in the same frequency band. A security protocol is of paramount importance for protection of information data and privacy.
