Data transmission has attracted widely concerning from worldwide researchers in wireless sensor networks. Jointly considered compressive sensing and matrix completion, a novel cross-layer optimal data transmission algorithm by maximizing utility function is proposed, which develops the stability control signal and valid link capacity. Original signals, with low-rank and sparsity, are processed that lead to the transmission is much less than original traffic. At same time, link capacity is allocated in a fair way, which avoids the congestion for data flow too large. Simulation results demonstrate that the algorithm is significantly effective for network lifetime and energy consumption.
