Internet of things (IoT) is network of networks where, a massive number of objects/things are connected through wired/wireless communications and different infrastructures to provide value-added services. For this reason, controlling and managing the connected objects is a great challenge due to heterogeneity of objects, low power battery, limited memory and limited capacity of calculation. Also, missing standards for horizontal communication of objects is another interesting challenge. To overcome the problem of communication of objects and services management in IoT, recent studies have focused on applications in limited network where the communication is not standard and the dynamic service creation remains difficult. In this paper, we propose a global architecture for services management and communication which handles vertical and horizontal communications silos. It is composed of internal architecture that manages and creates dynamic services in internal network or in a device of IoT. Also objects in this architecture are classified in order to consider the specific domain or subdomain services.
