Conference paper


A complex geodata sensor network is the sum of several sensor networks, each of which composed of different typologies of sensors monitoring specific environmental factors. The main application of complex geodata sensor network is collection and forecast of geo-information. To achieve accurate forecasts at high spatial accuracy, several single networks of sensors are interconnected together so that homogeneous data coming from different sources are collected and processed in real-time. This work focuses on the problem of interconnecting different networks together and to a central system of data storage. Specifically, an MPLS approach is proposed for guaranteeing good results in terms of overall security and bandwidth.
