Abstract: Now-a-days Wireless Sensor Networks plays predominant role in the communication domain. The data to be disseminated from multiple sources to the destination base station or sink is having vital significance. There are many problems with which data can be conveyed up to the sink. The congestion, reliability, delay, fairness, etc. are of main concern. These can be treated as Quality of Service parameters that govern the performance of the WSN. Above all the Energy s consumption is the main constrain for WSN node. It is very difficult to obtain good QoS by keeping energy consumption low. Even if response of one of QoS parameter will depends on the many other QoS parameters. We have to take care of all QoS parameters to improve the performance of the wireless sensor networks. This Quality of Services may improve the application base of the WSN. With the QoS parameters the data dissemination along with energy optimization is get affected. We have to check the performance of the WSN against the QoS metrics for different data inputs. This may contain the periodic- non periodic data, event based data, transient or burst data. For all these different types of inputs data we are checking the performance of QoS parameters like congestion, reliability and fairness. This may lead to new researcher to verify their results and excel their research work accordingly.
