The embedded systems are highly optimized to perform limited duties of particular needs. They can be control, Process, medical, signal, and image processing applications. The challenges faced by embedded systems are security, real-time, scalability, high availability and also performance based interoperability as more and more different devices are added to the systems. These complex ubiquitous systems are glued together with layers of protocols. Networking of these is a task to look for with minimum flaws in manageability, synchronization and consistency.
