Comparative Study of Various WSN Routing Protocols


Objectives: Main objective behind choosing this topic is that energy awareness which is an essential consideration in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN). This paper presents classifications of various routing protocols of sensor networks. Here, protocols are described under appropriate categories. Methods/Statistical Analysis: This paper follows the method of classifying the networking protocols based on their network architecture and performing comparison analysis specific to bandwidth utilization viewpoint. Findings: In this paper, we categorize the protocols on the basis of their network architectures. This paper compares their scalability and power usage to differ them. It discusses designing a protocol to utilize bandwidth and energy for various applications. Also it defines how nodes become self-organized and secure in WSN. We present how big networks are established and make them efficient. Application/Improvements: Data must be aggregated so traffic jams are avoided. Nodes will become energy efficient therefore lifespan of network increases. Now energy is saved.

Keywords: Energy Efficient, Network Lifetime, Protocols, Routing, WSN
