Abstract: Today we can’t think communication systems without support of advancements made in computer technologies whereby it is a major achievement to realize the convergence of the technologies providing highly pervasive system. The communication systems evolved essentially from wired communications and grew to the current wireless communications. Wireless sensor networks do not need large deployment infrastructure. Here each individual sensor node acts as a part of the overall infrastructure. All nodes are connected in multi-hop mesh topology. In this flexible mesh architecture, we easily add new nodes and scale up to achieve control and monitoring over larger region. The sensor network protocols and algorithms possess self-organizing capabilities. Wireless sensor network communication systems mostly being deployed in open fields are physically accessible to adversaries and are more vulnerable due to being remotely managed, densely deployed, low power (battery life time), low communication bandwidth, low processing capability, and use of only the broadcasting mechanism to communicate with other nodes.
