This paper describes an approach to the internetworking of sensory nodes in a converged network environment. This preliminary investigation of sensory network creation is driven by a joint applied research project which seeks to establish the feasibility of the real-time remote monitoring of animal welfare while in transit between Ireland, Europe and the Middle East. This paper examines the use of Java to create sensor services in converging architectures which leverage the Internetworking protocols and describes our implementation of such a system.
