During spring 2007 the seminar on Internetworking focuses on networking technologies for the home environment. One major wireless trend that is currently under way is the deployment of wireless local area networks in the enterprises, in public places and at homes. Until quite recently, home networks were primarily the realm of technophiles only - most families either didn't need or couldn't afford more than one computer. This situation has already started to change. More and more homes have multiple computers and people are building connectivity between various devices inside the home and from the home to the Internet. In the future households, new type of devices will enter and leave the home network, which will become a necessity rather than a technical toy. To understand the ingredients that impact the home networking phenomenon, the key IP technologies, wireless link technologies, service management and schemes to manage the security and privacy of home networks all need to be considered. Also, the emerging business models and possible new players in the new markets need to be identified. In the home environment, the user aspects and what end users are looking for in their future homes is of crucial importance, and the management of a home network should be made as easy as possible. In this seminar we will address home networking with a wide range of topic areas.
