USN (Ubiquitous Sensor Network) technology is recognized as a next-generation core technology and spreads rapidly through various pilot projects. It is widely used especially in the areas such as home network and health care in u-city. However, since existing services are operated separately under their own wireless network suitable to each area, there is a problem that interworking and sharing data among wireless field networks such as WiFi, Bluetooth and Zigbee is considerably difficult. In this paper, we propose a new network system architecture for open USN communication that can guarantee the low-power interoperability and service quality in various wireless field networks. In addition, the model proposed was so designed as to guarantee the maximum reliability by minimizing the message loss in major sensing data.
