Wireless Sensor Network has various characteristics such as feasibility of rapid deployment, self-organization and fault tolerance. Such networks are constructed by randomly but densely scattered tiny sensor nodes. Various algorithms have been developed to minimize the energy consumption of sensor nodes. Among them, Low Energy Adaptive Clustering Hierarchy (LEACH) is considered to be more efficient. In this paper, a review of energy efficient Optical Low Energy Adaptive Clustering Hierarchy algorithm has been compared with existing Low Energy Adaptive Clustering Hierarchy algorithm, between two wireless sensor network fields. The comparison is based on the parameters: data rate and network lifetime. To overcome the drawbacks of Optical Fiber Sensor (OFS) link, few concepts has been investigated.
