Making TCP/IP Viable for Wireless Sensor Networks
Number of Authors: 3
2003 (English)Report (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The TCP/IP protocol suite, which has proven itself highly successful in wired networks, is often claimed to be unsuited for wireless micro-sensor networks. In this work, we question this conventional wisdom and present a number of mechanisms that are intended to enable the use of TCP/IP for wireless sensor networks: spatial IP address assignment, shared context header compression, application overlay routing, and distributed TCP caching (DTC). Sensor networks based on TCP/IP have the advantage of being able to directly communicate with an infrastructure consisting either of a wired IP network or of IP-based wireless technology such as GPRS. We have implemented parts of our mechanisms both in a simulator environment and on actual sensor nodes, and preliminary results are promising.
