For the future, it is envisioned that an incredibly number of inexpensive pervasive devices surrounds us. These devices are networked so that they can exchange data with their environment. Already today we have global networks like the Internet, and there are already many attempts to connect sensors and actuators to these networks. However, there are a variety of problems like security, scalability, reliability, as well as resource and cost constraints. In this paper, we will present an advanced architecture for bridging the gap between pervasive devices like wireless sensors and the Internet. Various widespread concepts and technologies are combined to create a practical solution.
