Abstract: Wireless sensor network is a set of wireless sensor nodes without a fixed network structure. The sensor nodes are constrained with limited battery energy to operate with. These nodes are used in gathering environmental data and used in military operations, forests search or count operations and many other operations where human monitoring is difficult and impossible. The nodes maintenance is also absolutely difficult due to the deployed locations inaccessibility and lack of continuous power supply. To overcome these difficulties many research attempted to achieve the maximum network lifetime and batter efficient wireless sensor infrastructure through efficient routing, system design and architecture. In this study, we present a survey of such system designs to understand the network organization and functionality and analysis of the limitations to propose a better theoretical model of network management which helps to perform the network in efficient way.
