personal operating space (WPAN) (POS)

The term Personal Operating Space (POS) is used in Wireless Personal Area Networks(WPAN) according to IEEE 802.15.

The Personal Operating Space (POS) is the action area surrounding the wireless mobile device and the person operating it. The POS area has a radius of about 10 meters and can establish radio links to stationary and mobile terminals in this area and thus become part of the WPAN if it is equipped with a radio modem. In addition to computers, these can also be smartphones, radio microphones, loudspeakers or headphones.

The limitation of the personal operating space can also be used for application purposes by excluding people outside this area from communication.
