This paper presents a new approach in dealing with hybridization issues in communication systems or sensors. The thrust is to separate the logical network (sensor) infrastructure from the physical one. Here we show how we can exploit concepts such as persistent identification which we believe is crucial to be able to connect a variety of heterogeneous devices in a network that grows, and that is robust to failures. A vital characteristic of our architecture is the ability to accommodate a variety of heterogeneous devices and subsystems. Several examples of hybridization of sensors at the physical, logical, and network levels are presented and discussed.
