Abstract [en]

This report identifies the challenges of deploying a Delay-Tolerant Wireless Sensor Network in an environment with a subarctic climate. The network is intended to enable remote access to measuring stations and the environmental data that they record. The report proposes a high-level organization of such a network and reviews several different network and transport layer protocols, as well as services, suitable for the network. It does so by reviewing previous sensor network deployments and identifying the requirements of these networks, as well as the requirements of the applications and conditions found in this particular scenario. In this scenario, the size and spread of the network, along with the complex geographical properties of the deployment area are found to be the greatest challenges. This requires the use of many different network and hardware technologies within the same network. In order to successfully deploy a network of this extent, thorough investigations of the operation environment, the applications' requirements and the conditions for radio communication in the area must be conducted.
