In this paper the importance of tool-suite for large scale Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) deployment scenario has been investigated. This tool-suite is classified depending on the required feature for WSN deployment. Here both pre-deployment and post deployment has been considered for classification. Planning tool is used in pre-deployment phase and diagnostic tool is used in post-deployment phase. To enable a good planning for WSN, a proper model of WSN and the number and position of sensor nodes are required. In post deployment phase, the diagnostic tool will monitor the health of the deployed network status.
