Wireless sensor networks are low cost networks constituted by modest devices with limited resources, whose main function is monitoring. Based on the low price of these devices, it will be cheap to deploy a large amount of nodes to monitor a large area. However, to provide an efficient ad hoc network using these limited devices, new and optimized algorithms should be proposed. Most of the current work about WSNs are based on simulation studies and do not take in consideration engineering processes. This paper presents a multi-sink node alternative to multi-hop solutions. The proposed solution also provides a new system for the discovery of devices and services over IPv6, allowing nodes to be automatically incorporated in the nearest WSN. This paper also presents a paradigm to efficiently provide mobility, granting a fast handover of nodes between different WSNs, without loosing the connection.
