IPv6 over Low power Wireless Personal Area Networks (6LoWPAN) has accelerated the integration of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) and smart objects with the Internet. At the same time, the Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) has made it possible to provide resource constrained devices with RESTful web service functionalities and consequently to integrate(More)
The use of Internet Protocol (IP) technology in Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is a key prerequisite for the realization of the Internet of Things (IoT) vision. The IPv6 over Low power Wireless Personal Area Networks (6LoWPAN) standard enables the use of IPv6 in networks of constrained devices. 6LowPAN enables the use of Service Oriented Architectures (SOAs)(More)
IPv6 over Low power Wireless Personal Area Networks (6LoWPAN) and IPv6 Routing Protocol for Low-power and Lossy networks (RPL) have accelerated the integration of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) and smart objects with the Internet. At the same time, the development of the Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) has made it possible to provide resource(More)
The Internet traffic evolution has forced network operators to migrate toward an integrated infrastructure which brings the IP and optical layers under a unified model. The integration between the two technologies has been facilitated by the development of the Generalized Multi Protocol Label Switching. In the integrated scenario, Multilayer Traffic(More)
Space and Earth monitoring is the next step for sensor networks. Distributed systems of small sensor-equipped satellites improve the cost efficiency and the missions' performance. This abstract discusses the characteristics of satellite Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) and the challenges they introduce.
