Abstract

As wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are adopted more and more in every day life applications, their interconnection to external networks and infrastructures become mandatory for increasing the usability and flexibility especially in healthcare application scenarios. This paper presents techniques, mechanisms and devices that provide the WSN under study the ability to connect to external networks in an efficient way transparently to the end user.
