VISION OF LOW-POWER
AND LOSSY NETWORKS
For nearly a decade, wireless sensor network
research and development largely assumed that
the Internet architecture was ill suited for sensor
network applications. Many in the field argued
that Internet protocols were impractical for the
resource constrained devices that were being
embedded in the physical world; that the end-to-
end architecture was inappropriate for the local-
ized algorithms and in-network processing
required to achieve robustness and scalability;
and that an architecture designed to accommo-
date a wide range of applications was unneces-
sary as sensor networks would be tailored to
specific target applications.
As a result, academic and commercial efforts
during this period did not assume the traditional
interfaces and layers of network architecture.
