Considerable research has been done on different aspects of sensor networks. However management issues for these devices are still little explored. Nonetheless, with the increasing number of heterogeneous distributed sensors in various application domains, their management gains more and more importance, in particular for domains where requirements in terms of quality service, reliability, security and integrity are high, e.g., industrial, medical and domotics. This paper promotes an integrated management solution that covers domains such as network, system, application and device management. It first gives a brief state of the art of management solutions for traditional computer systems and sensor networks, then from a device management point of view, it presents challenges and possible solutions for generic networked sensing device management.
