Congestion Detection and Mitigation Protocols for Wireless Sensor Networks

Authors(3) :-Muhammad Zeeshan, Fazlullah Khan, Syed Roohullah Jan

Congestion control is tremendously important area within wireless sensor networks (WSN). With the appearance of new network applications, the non-stop increasing traffic is starting to experience unexpected situation of network congestion. Congestion in wireless sensor network affects the nonstop flow of data, loss of information, delay and reduces the energy of nodes due to overhead of retransmission. Therefore, congestion needs to be control in wireless sensor network in order to extend system lifetime, improve fairness and quality of service and to attain high energy efficiency. This paper revives different routing protocols used in wireless sensor networks to mitigate and control congestion and to provide consistency for different applications and prolong the life of the wireless sensor network.
