Today, Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is considered as one of the major research areas in computer network field. One of the many WSN functions is to provide sensing services in an unattended harsh environment. Sensed data need to be delivered to the data collection centre and to cope with the reliable network problem. Different routing protocols have been developed to deal with this problem. It is still a great challenge of the hierarchical routing protocol to operate efficiently in the presence of node failure. Therefore, a novel hierarchical routing protocol that addresses network survivability and redundancy issues is studied. Simulation results show superiority of the proposed protocol over the existing protocols.
