Energy Efficiency and low latency are considered to bemost important performance metrics for the performance ofWireless Sensor Networks. Communication is a big part of energy consumption and MAC protocols directly control this communication. In this paper the comparison has been carried out between two MAC protocols LL MAC protocol and a new sleep schedule Q-MAC protocol. Both QMAC and LLMAC follow a stagger active schedule. The simulation results indicate that LLMAC protocol performs better for both the metrics than Q-MAC.
