Kraken's are really good against this network. Place 'em around the edges, and use an additional Beam Cannon when you get to the Sentries, and a couple of Cannons when you get to the Turret. You'll need one for the Scanner, and a couple for the Black ICE as well. Use more Beam Cannons to mop up the center, with a shield or 2 for the end, as some nodes get recaptured.
There are 10 types of people in the world. Those that can read binary, and those that cant.

I just finished this one last week at my only lv20~ .

What I did:

1) Disable CG and inner sentry
2) Send 3 Krakens and worms
3) Luminaar described quite details on those tree nodes where I did almost similar.

Wraith code gate and all sentries and then kraken and worms all the way. only need to put down ICE walls when nodes going against the black ICE and turret.

I wouldn't use kraken, I personally would stealth the gates, the core sentry, and then going from the nearest gate a beam and a worm. Working my way into the core area. Worms will take out the ring by themselves and you don't really care about it anyway.

Honestly it doesn't matter what offense you choose. I personally use a worm, and a 2:1 BC to Shuri ratio. I actually only use 6-7 ice walls, and I've got a protector for the annoying scanner chokepoints.

But then you would have to take control of all nodes, do the kraken and the worms will tidy stuff up, also yeah wraith CG and sentry, the AV gets annoying after a while. You might need some ICE walls for the turrets around the outside.

What do you mean? A kraken is expensive.

All the good stuff is in the middle with no defensive aspect once that sentry is wraithed. You have 3 minutes, should take 30 to get in the core area. Worms will do it all alone, once you're there, but a few shuriken will speed up the process. An ice wall, a protector, and a few beams to get to the gate. Gg.

Alternatively, portal the sentry and worm shuriken from there.

I mean, work aren't that strong, and are a bit slow at duplicating, si when they trekker over a node near the turret the turret started firing in just zero point font seconds. While the worm takes time to duplicate, the firewall will be destroyed fast and you will lose the node (one of the mission requirements is to control all nodes) . Krakens are expensive but there have a really short duplicate time, also once you've realised the krakens you can just sit and wait and it will do everything for you, but worms are definitely needed to tidy up remains of a network. But not as a primary attack program in my opinion.
