The wireless sensor networks consist of large amount of small sensor nodes that can process, store and transmit data within limited range because of their small size and minimum cost these nodes with embedded sensors are widely use in different type of applications such as tracking and health monitoring. Data was send with specific amount of average end-to-end delay, throughput and latency in these networks. For routing the data different protocols were used that can guarantee the communication and maintaining the paths in network. I have compared the two routing protocols OLSR and DSDV in wireless sensor network. I have compare the three-metrics throughput, average end to end delay and latency of these two protocols with different packet size and make the three types of scenarios with respect to bandwidth in ns 2. The results show that the DSDV has high throughput, low latency and low average end to end delay as compare to OLSR that shows minimum throughput, high average end to end delay and has high latency to transmit data in all the scenarios.
