The federation of WSN testbeds has brought forward the requirement for a QoS implementation, in order to ensure efficient and reliable end-to-end communication between testbeds' users and testbeds' facilities. Now-a-days, the Internet has become the de facto standard for establishing remote connectivity between these testbeds. However, as the mechanism of QoS support in WSNs may be very different from that in the Internet, it is necessary to address the differences between the QoS employed in the Internet and the QoS required in WSN testbeds for the purpose of QoS provisioning. Hence, the authors' work focuses on generating a QoS model for testbed gateways by merging the QoS perspectives from both networks.
