Abstract: Wireless sensor networks are getting famous day by day in the current days of research and applications. These networks are becoming important in day to day communications. In these networks, all the nodes in the network will act as a router and sends the data collecting from other nodes to further other nodes inthe networks. These networks may be the same or the other network.In general several types of nodes and the other protocols are available in the networks.Someprotocols are hugely used while some other protocols are used very less in real time applications. These protocols are used based onvarious scenarios.The performance of the networks and the protocols used in the networks might be changed from time to time based on various parameters. Some of the important performance metrics of these networks and protocols are like network topology, a number of nodes in the network, seed time, speed time and pause time. Some of the protocols that were discussed in the current are DSR, DSDV and AODV. The different connection types that were considered here are Constant bit rate and TCP. The performance of the currently considered protocols are analyzed by using various performance metrics like end to end delay, losses in packet ratio and packet delivery ratio. The simulator NS2.35 was used in the current work to analyze the performance of these protocols.
