The proposed work aims at designing routing method and data compression algorithm for WSN’s. An ad-hoc network (WANET) is considered and based on certain criteria the data is forwarded dynamically. Various parameters such as Compression Ratio, Packet Delivery Rate, Energy consumption are considered to determine the efficiency of the network. One of the primary parameters to be considered in the configuration of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) is the energy consumption of the nodes and the data throughput. Since the nodes are controlled by batteries with lower energy limit, it is required to minimize the energy utilization. Henceforth a proficient routing technique in light of LEACH protocol is proposed alongside the utilization of A-LEC data compression strategy.The simulations are carried out through Network Simulator 2 (NS2). The compression code is written in GNU-C
