Sensor network is one of the most congested and critical communication network defined under lot of restrictions. These restrictions are defined in terms of energy specification and the memory limits. Lots of challenges are associated with sensor network. Communication in sensor network is controlled using some routing protocol. To achieve the effective communication over the network, particular protocol selection is required. In this paper, the classification of sensor network is defined according to the applications and requirement. The paper has categorized all the available protocols in some related classes as well as the exploration to each protocol class is defined in this paper.
