A unifying link abstraction for wireless sensor networks
ng Link Abstraction for Wireless Sensor Networks Joseph Polastre, Jonathan Hui, Philip Levis, Jerry Zhao, David Culler, Scott Shenker, and Ion Stoica Computer Science Department International Computer Science Institute University of California, Berkeley 1947 Center Street. Suite 600 Berkeley, CA 94720 Berkeley, CA 94704 Recent technological advances and the continuing quest for greater efficiency have led to an explosion of link and network protocols for wireless sensor networks. These protocols embody very different assumptions about network stack composition and, as such, have limited interoperability. It has been suggested [3] that, in principle, wireless sensor networks would benefit from a unifying abstraction (or “narrow waist” in architectural terms), and that this ion should be closer to the link level than the network level. This paper takes that vague principle and turns it into practice, by proposing a specific unifying sensornet protocol (SP) that provides shared ne...
