With the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT), it is necessary to define service models, which can categorize IoT applications and determine the Quality of Service (QoS) factors necessary to satisfy the requirements of those services. On the other hand, as Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) constitutes a main component of the IoT, they become a key factor concerning QoS provision. In this paper, the authors focus their analysis on the possible WSNs integration approaches in the IoT while providing QoS and which best practices to adopt. Furthermore, regarding QoS requirements, they also define service models for the IoT and expose their feasibility through a categorization of IoT applications.
