This paper presents an analytical model for estimating throughput and energy consumption in B-MAC protocol for Wireless Sensor Networks. The design includes transmission power control and multi-hop transmission of frames through adjusted transmitted power level. Proposed model reduces collision with contention level notification. The proposed model has been simulated using MATLAB. The simulations reveal better results for throughput and energy consumption of the proposed model as compared to B-MAC protocol.
