Blank Area Networks

LAN - Local Area Network
WAN - Wide Area Network
MAN - Metro Area Network
PAN - Personal Area Network

and now we have the MBAN - Medical Body Area Network.
"The MBAN radio spectrum would create a wireless body sensor network for remotely monitoring critically and chronically ill people via small wireless devices so that medical workers can track the person's health status as well as take swift action in emergencies."
The impacted frequencies:
"The bandwidths being requested for MBANs -- 2360-2400 MHz; 2300-2305 MHz and 2395-2400 MHz; 2400-2483.5 MHz; or 5150-5250 MHz -- reside next those now used by Bluetooth devices."
