Wireless Sensor Networks Suitable for Large-Scale Heterogeneous Networking

Xi Wang, Feifei Li


In order to optimize the network architecture, addressing mechanism, heterogeneous nodes and other functions of wireless sensor networks, this study begins with the issue of networking of large-scale heterogeneous networks. A layered distributed network architecture is proposed, which provides a powerful reference for the future architecture of wireless sensor networks. Based on this architecture, the resource addressing of the corresponding hierarchical network, and the scale and location deployment of heterogeneous nodes such as sink nodes are discussed separately, and corresponding strategies and algorithms are proposed. The research results show that the core idea of the addressing mechanism is data-centric, address-oriented addressing is transformed into service-oriented addressing. Therefore, the proposed LBA addressing algorithm is suitable for other hierarchically structured networks. In addition, although the sink node is taken as an example for research, it is also suitable for the deployment of other heterogeneous nodes such as sink nodes, relay nodes, and base stations. In summary, regardless of the number of nodes or the location of the deployment, energy-saving factors need to be considered. Energy-saving is also an indispensable technology in wireless sensor network technology.
