Unbalanced energy consumption is an inherent problem in WSNs characterized by multi-hop routing and many-to-one traffic pattern. This uneven energy dissipation can significantly reduce network lifetime. In this paper, we proposed an attribute table-based energy-efficient and QoS multipath routing protocol to improve network performance in the multi-hop network. The attribute table is prepared for each transaction, and the energy level of the node is monitored for every transmission. The optimized pair shortest path algorithm is used to find the shortest path between all pairs of vertexes and reduce the duration of data transmission. After every transmission node, the energy level is noticed by the attribute table for the next process. This efficiently transmits the data with security and minimizes the packet losses.
