    Have you ever thought of an MWD being similar to a smartphone? In terms of a short range communication think of the bluetooth and a short-hop. Your cellular communication would be your mudpule or electromagnetic  telemetry as the long range communication. This standard wireless protocol allows you to have utility for multiple devices. Ken discusses how this mechanical structure could evolve for the smart BHA peripherals that all locally communicate with the MWD.  Got any questions?
