Implementation of Itree-MAC Protocol for Effective Energy Consumption in Wireless Sensor Networks

Authors(2) :-K. S. Ananda Kumar, R. Balakrishna

Recent day's wireless sensor networks, obtain a lot of importance to researchers. Energy efficiency is playing a key role in ensuring a secure, consistent and sustainable scheme for the future. Reliable data communication and energy consumption are the mainly significant parameters that are required in wireless sensor networks. Here, the author focuses on the following parametric measures like - energy consumption and packet delivery ratio. Many number of sensor nodes are spread that can communicate with all other nodes in the network. Different MAC protocols have been planned to improve the efficiency more by enhancing the packet delivery ratio, reliability and less energy consumption. In this paper the author proposes a new scheme based on Itree-MAC protocol, NS2 is used for implementation of this protocol.Itree-MAC provides a high packet delivery ratio and less energy consumption. The results show that energy consumption is very less in Itree-MAC compared to other protocols like IRC-MAC and RC MAC protocols.
