The IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) aims to provide cellular access to all the services that the Internet offers; it is an overlay control layer on top of an IP layer. Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) with mobile sinks are useful in a wide range of scenarios since they can improve the overall network lifetime and increase data capacity. Combining the capabilities of IMS with the rich set of contextual information captured by mobile sink WSNs will open the door to a wide range of novel multimedia services. This paper proposes an overlay architecture for the integration of IMS with mobile sink-based WSN. The Presence service is used as entry point to the IMS world. The gateway which is the heart of our architecture is an overlay built on top of the very same mobile phones that act as mobile sinks, presence publishers / watchers, and end-user devices. A prototype is built using JXME, an extension of JXTA with P2P middleware.
