In this paper, the authors simulate and comparatively analyze the sensor network protocols with additional aggregate queue and transmit duplicate layers on MICA and MICAz platform with different radio models using PROWLER and RMASE. The simulation results show that the MICAz motes give low latency, high throughput, high energy consumption, low efficiency but better lifetime while the MICA motes give high success rate and low loss rate. It has been, thus, concluded that in case of all the radio models the MICA is preferably better than MICAz in applications where energy is a constraint otherwise MICAz is better as it gives greater lifetime.
