Wireless sensor networks are designed to extract data from the deployment environment and combine sensing, data processing and wireless communication to provide useful information for the network users. Hundreds or thousands of small embedded units, which operate under low-energy supply and with limited access to central network control, rely on interconnecting protocols to coordinate data aggregation and transmission. Energy efficiency is crucial and it has been proposed that cluster based and distributed architectures such as LEACH are particularly suitable. We analyse the random cluster hierarchy in this protocol and provide a solution for low-energy and limited-loss optimization. Moreover, we extend these results to a multi-level version of LEACH, where clusters of nodes again self-organize to form clusters of clusters, and so on.
