An infrastructure shared 802.6 MAN based personal communication network(PCN) is to be discussed. Considering the network configurations of CATV and 802.6 MAN based PCNs, a possible architecture is proposed. It is shown that the unidirectional dual buses can be implemented over star topological CATV distribution cable networks with only two cores. The design considerations related to the network capacity and the signaling loads for wireless personal communications are investigated with numerical example. The MAN partitioning is considered to extend the capacity of the network. An analytical method to evaluate the signaling loads of 802.6 MAN based PCNs is presented with a new mobility model. It is shown that the signaling traffic increased by partitioning is not the critical constraint for the feasibility of 802.6 MAN based PCN
