Typically, a WBAN can comprise of a series of miniature sensor/actuator nodes; each of which has its own energy supply, can include a storage and energy scavenging devices. Each node has also enough intelligence to carry out its task and able to communicate with other sensor nodes or with a central node worn on the body. The central node communicates with the outside world using a standard telecommunication infrastructure such as a wireless LAN or cellular network, which may deliver the information to the M2M network. The network also can deliver services to the person using the WBAN; these services can include the management of chronic disease, medical diagnostic, home monitoring, biometrics, and sports and fitness tracking; or specific military-oriented services and other.
Nodes should be ultra-low power and frequency band agnostic; WBAN is intended to co-exist with legacy networks - primary users of the spectrum. The trend is migration to the M2M networking.
