A Review: The Architectural Analysis of the Wireless Sensor Network

Aastha Tiwari, Amit Sexana, Kaptan Sing, Deepak Singh Tomar


A wireless sensor network is a collection of numeral sensors nodes & at least one base station. The sensor node is an independent tiny device that comprises of predominantly four units that are sensing, processing, communication & power supply. A comprehensive explanation regarding the WSN is given in this paper. In the beginning an architectural overview of a wireless sensor node, protocol stack, communication protocol architecture.

Keywords: Wireless sensor network (WSN), WSN Communication Protocol Architecture, Influencing Factors, Deployment Model
