The size of wireless sensor node is small and the battery power of these sensor nodes is also limited. The wireless sensor nodes consume battery power in transmitting, processing the data. Generally, wireless sensor nodes consume more energy in transmitting the data than processing of the data. The wireless sensor nodes are deployed in the far places like forests, it is very difficult to recharge or replace the battery of these sensor nodes. Main focus of this paper is to reduce the energy consumption of the wireless sensor nodes during data transmission. With the use of caching the energy consumption is reduced and data can be collected faster and traffic on the network will also reduce.
