LoWPANs Meet Service-Oriented-Architecture
The Low-Power Wireless Personal Area Networks (LoWPANs) have been recognized as a promising technology for ubiquitous and pervasive computing systems. However, LoWPAN technology is still open to being adapted to existing interoperability mechanisms defined for the Internet. Service-Oriented-Architecture (SOA) is one of the key paradigms that enables the deployment of services at large-scale over the Internet domain and its integration with LoWPANs has opened new pathways for novel applications and research. Despite the need to integrate SOA with LoWPANs, only handful efforts are underway to achieve the goal.
