Internet of Things is the auspicious technology that connects different internet enabled devices in single network architecture. IoT contributes effective service in various applications such as industrial automation, health care sectors, and home automation. Availability of low cost devices makes IoT as innovative paradigm in large-scale wireless network research. Challenges in IoT applications vary from each other. For example, in smart grid applications QoS is more important, whereas for land slide monitoring applications, energy efficiency and reliability are the major requirements. Thus, in this chapter, we come up with various network architectures that are suitable for IoT applications. The network architectures are designed by combining different optimization techniques into single network design, to satisfy specific network requirements. This chapter elaborates the major issues that affect the network performance and suitable solutions for those issues by means of efficient network architectures.
