Abstract: This paper highlight about the maximization of network lifetime & minimization of delay parameter which is important to improve the performance of the wireless sensor network as effective and reliable Wireless mostly energy is used when communication radios are on. The network lifetime is usually defined as the time until the first node fails because of energy depletion. So sleep-wake scheduling is effective mechanism to increase network lifetime. Sleep-wake scheduling is efficient to increase network lifetime but it could result in substantial delays because a transmitting node needs to wait for its next-hop relay node to wake up. We attempts to reduce these delays by developing “anycast”-based packet forwarding schemes, where each node opportunistically forwards a packet to the first neighboring node that wakes up among multiple candidate nodes such set of nodes called forwarding node set. We used anycast forwarding schemes to forward the data packet to next hop node which minimizes the expected packet-delivery delays from the sensor nodes to the sink node. Based on this result, we provide a solution to the problem of how to optimally control the system parameters of the sleep-wake scheduling protocol and the anycast packet forwarding protocol to maximize the network lifetime and minimize the delay with constraint on the expected end-to-end packet-delivery delay.
