It is expected that in the near future smart objects will have an Internet connection -- this is the Internet of Things vision. Most of these objects compatible with the IEEE 802.15.4 standard are characterized by small size, power constrains, and small computing resources. Connecting such devices to the Internet is considered simultaneously the biggest challenge and a great opportunity for the Internet growth. To achieve the Internet of things vision is necessary to support IPv6 protocol suite in all objects. Supporting IPv6 simplifies, simultaneously, the integration of these objects in the Internet and their management. Actually, despite of the relevance, there are no existing standard solutions to manage smart object networks. Managing this type of networks poses a unique challenge because smart object networks may be comprised of thousands of nodes, are highly dynamic and prone to failures. This paper presents a complete solution to manage smart object networks based on SNMPv1 protocol. The paper also presents the design and deployment of a laboratory testbed.
