Smart Ocean Environments are currently considered a key factor to connect the physical world with the information world. A Smart Ocean Environment can be defined as the combination of a physical environment, a collection of marine instruments gathering heterogeneous data from the environment, an infrastructure for data management and a connectivity solution to convey data from instruments to the Smart Space . Also the collected information is stored in the Smart Space and available in the Web in an interoperable format. Standards such as IEEE-1451  and OGC Sensor Web Enablement (OGC SWE)  are used to provide instrument descriptions, capabilities, properties, and data structures produced by the instruments. This paper describes the implementation and evaluation of PUCK protocol  and Zeroconf protocol  in Smart Ethernet embedded systems. These protocols enable observing systems to manage very diverse instruments as well as to acquire, process, and interpret their data in a uniform and automated manner.
