Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have recently gained a great deal of attention as a topic of research, with a wide range of applications being explored. Bulk data dissemination is a basic building block for sensor network applications. The problem of designing efficient bulk data dissemination protocols has been addressed in a number of recent studies. The problem of mathematically analyzing the performance of these protocols, however, has not been addressed sufficiently in the literature. In this work, we show a way of analyzing mathematically the performance of bulk data dissemination protocols in WSNs. Our model can be applied to general networks by use of the shortest propagation path. Our model is accurate by considering topological information, impact of contention, and impact of pipelining. We validate the analytical results through detailed simulations, and we find the analytical results fit well with the simulation results. Further, we demonstrate that the analytical results can be used to aid protocol design for performance optimizations, e.g., page size tuning for shortening the completion time.
