With the faster adoption of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs), on the one hand sensor-derived data need to be accessed via various web-based social networks or virtual communities and on the other hand, limited processing ability of WSNs is a hurdle. To address this issue WSNs can be integrated with cloud. Cloud enjoys ample processing ability and is a capable infrastructure to deliver people-centric and context-aware services to users, thus expedites adoption of WSNs. In this paper a novel framework based on policy based network management is proposed to integrate WSNs with cloud, aims to automate and simplifies WSN's management tasks.
