Service provision in low power network environments remains a very difficult task due to the lightweight nature of the devices involved. This paper explores and demonstrates the efficacy of the light weight resource allocation protocol (LRAP) in allocating services in a heterogeneous network environment consisting of primarily low power nodes. We show that with the correct resource brokering approach, services can be provisioned on nodes in a way which does not cripple individual nodes in network, while ensuring that services are distributed to nodes in the network where the lowest impact on overall performance will be made. This strategy provides an effective way of providing services especially in low power environments
