Personal Area Networking (PAN) Profile (Windows CE 5.0)

Send Feedback

The Personal Area Networking (PAN) profile depends on the Generic Access Profile (GAP) and defines a set of roles and a set of mandatory procedures and capabilities that a device must support for each role.

The PAN profile defines the following roles, and how each of these roles can interact.

For example the PAN profile defines how a PANU can use a NAP or a GN service to exchange data, or conversely, how a NAP or a GN can offer services to a PANU. The profile also defines how a PANU can have a direct connection with another PANU in a personal area network. All data exchange with the network is done by using the Bluetooth Network Encapsulation Protocol (BNEP).

You can configure the PAN profile through registry settings. For more information about the values to set, see Personal Area Network (PAN) Profile Registry Settings.

For more information, see the Personal Area Networking Profile Specification at this Official Bluetooth Wireless Info Web site.
