This paper describes an approach to integrate sensor networks with information systems using the so-called messaging network architecture. A messaging network is an overlay network with a rich set of message handling capabilities. The use of messaging network reduces the complexity and the maintenance burden of the integrated sensor information systems. Message mediation enables not only interoperation of various applications but also integration of a diversity of data set to produce useful information. The proposed approach naturally leads to an SOA-based sensor network design. The decomposition of a system into services has many advantages in developing secure scalable multi-tenant information systems. The requirements on a messaging network for sensor network systems are presented.
