The emergence of sensor networks as one of the dominant technology trends in the coming decades has posed numerous problems regarding the Quality of Service (QoS) parameter to researchers. These QoS parameters are often found to be as limited resources. Hence to effectively utilize these limited resources, the authors propose a technique to manage two of the most basic QoS parameters of sensor networks, they are bandwidth and energy. They propose bandwidth management by implementing rules that guide the data streams to a specific data rate, so as to treat different data to its own credit. To manage energy they present GAF algorithm that effectively reduces energy consumption of the nodes keeping a constant level of routing fidelity.
