What are the benefits of extending the IP protocols natively to the sensor nodes?
IP-based wireless sensor networks leverage decades of established knowledge in networking management, security, operating models, technology and products. Additionally, IP-based WSNs enable unprecedented opportunities to develop efficient end-to-end applications between wireless sensor nodes operating in low-power IEEE 802.15.4 wireless mesh environments and other IP devices such as laptops, servers, handhelds, Wi-Fi cameras, etc. Lastly, IP-based applications do not have the innovation bottlenecks that would have been otherwise introduced by gateway devices translating between incompatible network technologies, as is the case when the WSN is not IP-based.
- Key benefits of convergence are economies and simplifications due to one multipurpose IP network (ease of moves, adds, changes, staff reduction, etc.), how can this be demonstrated?
- What are the benefits of extending the IP protocols natively to the sensor nodes?
- What does Ensemble do that protocols like TCP/IP don ?
