A Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) contains short range energy limited terminals/nodes in which multiple nodes participates one by one to transfer data from source node to Base station. Each node appends some amount of delay which degrades the network performance as the jittered behavior of network may not be allowed in some applications. Again the faulty nature of tandem nodes may create some severe routing scenarios. Concept of Broad Area Sensor Network (BASN) incorporates a real time communication between sensor node and Base station, which helps to optimize the Quality of Service (QoS).
