Recently, the network management of sensor nodes has gained interest as more sensors are being networked with Internet technologies as opposed to traditional instrumentation and measurement networks. Sensor networking standardization efforts lead a more interoperable way of identification and communication among sensors, and networking technologies provide multiple-access mechanisms to a high number of sensors. The convergence of sensor networking toward internetworking provides flexibility in protocol development for network management. This paper presents a novel demonstration of such a convergence by utilizing a common network management protocol, i.e., Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), and a sensor networking standardization effort, i.e., Transducer Electronic Data Sheet (TEDS). The TEDS information for two types of sensors has been transferred to the SNMP domain through a novel management information base design, and the network management system has been implemented on an actual testbed.
