Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is one of the major research areas in computer network field today. The function of WSN in this paper is to provide sensing services in an un-attended harsh environment. Sensed data need to be delivered to the base station and to cope with the network unreliability problem. Few routing protocol takes into consideration of this problem. It is a great challenge of the hierarchical routing protocol to provide network survivability through redundancy features. In this paper, a short literature review of the existing routing protocol is carried out. Then a novel hierarchical routing protocol, which addresses network survivability and redundancy issues, is introduced. Initial analysis shows promising results of the proposed protocol comparing with LEACH, which is a well known protocol as benchmark. Finally, conclusion was drawn based on the research and future direction for further research is identified.
