Creating an environment using Wireless Sensor nodes, deployed with limited resources to monitor and communicate within themselves is termed as Wireless Sensor Network (WSN). Due to the limited resources used, one of the important factors to be considered is network lifetime. Secure Real-Time Load Distribution (SRTLD) is a routing protocol which will boost the network life time. SRTLD protocol contains some issues such as very high power consumption due to broadcasting at every hop, added delay and data loss. This reduces the data transmission rate in the WSN. Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) proves to be a meta-heuristic algorithm practically, as it used the ant’s behavior to find optimized route. Biological Inspired Self-Organized Secure Autonomous Routing Protocol (BIOSARP) applies a self-organized autonomous routing protocol which is secure and also biologically inspired. It uses a better algorithm considering only pheromone value for the sake of Data Transmission. But in absentia of pheromone value another alternative way to find path is not an easy task. In this paper, we calculate energy level, cost as well as throughput of each node by the usage of AODV protocol and arrive at an optimal routing path. The results of AODV are promising and proved to outperform the simulation tool in terms of network connectivity time, energy-efficient routing and data delivery ratio.
