Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN), Flexible Service Oriented Network Architecture (FSONA). middleware architecture, interoperability, localization


Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is a combination of homogeneous and
heterogeneous sensor nodes which are physically deployed at different places. Heterogeneous
WSM can be characterized with different parameters such as hardware
resources, application, services, software platform and network. WSN are powerful
technology, which is used to build up many applications in the era of technological
development. These developments demand homogeneous or heterogeneous services as
per the user requirements at applications level. The requirement results in increasing
the 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 of
new services, new protocols and interoperability between heterogeneous services with
common communication architecture. This paper deals with these issues of wireless
sensor networks, elaborating the need of generalized communication architecture for
applications, developers and users, proposing generalized Flexible Service Oriented
Network Architecture (FSONA) to solve above issues along with the detailed functionality
of the proposed architecture.
