The Internet of Things (IoT) is a technology of connected computing and physical devices, vehicles, sensors, actuators, home appliances etc., and connectivity mechanism make sense in the devices to exchange data. The IoT environment consists of numerous devices with resource constraint characteristics such as small radio range, narrow processing capability and small battery life. Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) now uses IEEE 802.15.4 standard which identify the characteristic of a wireless link for low-power personal area networks, which are predominantly a battery-operated device, it possesses certain constraints such as low bandwidth, low transmit power and low data rate. With the emergence of smart environment and smart computing using IoT, here is need of some protocols which act as an interface between the WSN technology and Internet.
