Fast data can be collected over a tree based topology. For that purpose, a technique is explored and called as converge cast. Converge cast is a collection of data from a set of sensors towards a common sink over a tree based topology. By combining clustering and tree construction the authors can improve the efficiency. Incorporating these needs a protocol named Tree-Clustered Data Gathering Protocol (TCDGP) is developed. This protocol maintains wireless sensor network integrity. This protocol can reduce the power dissipation in large sensor networks.
