Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is a combination of homogeneous andheterogeneous sensor nodes which are physically deployed at different places. HeterogeneousWSM can be characterized with different parameters such as hardwareresources, application, services, software platform and network. WSN are powerfultechnology, which is used to build up many applications in the era of technologicaldevelopment. These developments demand homogeneous or heterogeneous services asper the user requirements at applications level. The requirement results in increasingthe number of services over the network and hence the number of complexities.Complexities of wireless sensor networks are increasing due to the lack of adoption ofnew services, new protocols and interoperability between heterogeneous services withcommon communication architecture. This paper deals with these issues of wirelesssensor networks, elaborating the need of generalized communication architecture forapplications, developers and users, proposing generalized Flexible Service OrientedNetwork Architecture (FSONA) to solve above issues along with the detailed functionalityof the proposed architecture.
