scope:

This standard defines physical layer (PHY) and medium access control (MAC) specifications for wireless connectivity with fixed, portable, and moving devices within or entering a personal operating space (POS). A POS is the space about a person or object that typically extends up to 10 m in all directions and envelops the person whether stationary or in motion.

The original goal of the IEEE 802.15.1 Task Group was to achieve a level of interoperability that could allow the transfer of data between a WPAN device and an IEEE 802.11™ device. Although this proved infeasible, IEEE Std 802.15.1-2005 does have mechanisms defined to allow better coexistence with IEEE 802.11b™ class of devices.

Both this standard and the previous version are based upon technology originally developed by the Bluetooth™ Special Interest Group (SIG).
