Multiple networking layers existing in the IoT network involve heterogeneity that must be addressed to facilitate proper communication such that the performance of an IoT network does not suffers. The performance of the IoT networks depends on networking topologies used in different layers, clustering algorithms, protocols used for handling heterogeneity communication speeds, and data packet sizes. In this Research, the performance of IoT networks is improved by adding device clustering via a multi-Stage network and using an efficient SOJK clustering algorithm in the device layer, which minimizes power depletion and increases the quantity of data and data packets; transmitted at zero power. A mechanism to handle heterogeneity that exists due to Wi-Fi, CDMA, and USB communication protocols is also presented while optimizing the communication speeds and data transmission size. It has also been shown that the use of 170Mbps cellular speed and the data size of 468 bytes gives the optimum response time of an IoT network. The time taken to transport information from the device to the storage layer is reduced by 57% compared to the time taken to transport the data using the prototype network.
