An apparatus to form a group of communication devices over a distributed network 10 is claimed. A fist node 22 establishes a first channel with a first communication device 12. At least one second node establishes at least one second channel with at least one second communication device. A controller 18 electrically connected to the first node 22 and the at least one second node 24 comprises a database module. The database module comprises identification information of each of the communication devices 12, 14, 16, 17 and 20 of the group. The controller is dynamically configurable such that any single communication device of the group is capable of sending packet data through its respective channel to the other communication devices of the group.
