With the advent of sensor units that are powered by micro cells, providing communication and coordination between these units has become an issue of paramount importance. There are various constraints that require to be taken into account while developing protocols for this system. The major issues that require to be addressed are: (1) The Power criterion; (2) Network parameters like throughput, pause-time, routing overhead; (3) Architecture. It would always be simple if the 7 layer OSI architecture could be actually broken down to a simple and less elaborate structure by developing cross layer algorithms with optimization of the network parameters. Moreover the various security issues concerned with the wireless systems have also to be taken into account. The major problems are going to be concerned with the network layer security issues like Denial of Service, Black Hole problem, impersonation etc. While developing algorithms for the same the characteristics of sensor networks like dynamic topology, self organisation, self healing etc have also to be preserved. The above gives a broad overview of the issues concerned and we aim at developing a protocol with enhanced security, minimum error and optimal network performance.
