Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) generate massive amount of live data and events sensed through dispersedly deployed tiny sensors. This generated data needed to be disseminate to the sink with slight consumption of network resources. Researchers prefer to choose gossiping to disseminate bulk data for unstructured ad-hoc wireless sensor networks. An important consideration in gossip-based dissemination protocols is to keep routing table up to date. Considering the inherent resource constrained nature of adhoc wireless sensor networks, we propose a gossip based protocol that consumes little resources. Our proposed scheme aims to keep the routing table size R as low as possible yet it ensures that the diameter is small too. We learned the performance of our proposed protocol through simulations .Results show that our proposed protocol attains major improvement in network reachability and connectivity.
