Kontextus: Also new protocols have been developed with special focus on energy balancing
in order to increase the lifetime of network that can be applied in biomedical applications
. In this paper, the optimization has been carried out for the chain protocol
(when nodes are forwarding the packets toward the BS via the neighboring nodes) and
for the shortcut type of protocols (when a packet may get to the BS by being first
transferred in the chain up to a certain node which then sends it directly to the
BS). The optimization problem is solved by combinatorial optimization tool.
