Configuration of WSN Using Application-Aware Virtual Networks
In this paper, the authors have presented a VSN creation mechanism. They have defined the ingredients of enabling application-aware VSN in WSN. VSN creation is a self-organizing mechanism, which can be initiated by any node and works in a distributed way. Through simulation results, they can conclude that use of VSN significantly reduces the number of packets used to deliver data hence, saving battery life of WSN nodes. Using Configuration Management as an application scenario they support their claims. Configuration Management enable dynamic Virtual Sensor Networks for efficient and resource aware management. In the future, their goal is to design a framework for the WSN management around this mechanism.
