Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) is a novel and promising technology used in commercial applications to monitor data that would be difficult or expensive to monitor using wired sensors. However, pure WSNs are still insufficient for many industrial applications where the reliability and high computational power of wired networks is needed. Hybrid networks can provide solutions to such applications, combining the advantages of both types of networks. This paper presents the evaluation of a hybrid network using TinyOS-based systems and traditional Ethernet. To the best of our knowledge, it is the first attempt of implementing a hybrid network using the novel research area of TinyOS systems.
