In the era of Internet of things (IoT), the sensors play an important role and also face a challenge of energy consumption. Sensors in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) deals with accumulation and processing of data and forward that to the remote locations, generally considered as cloud. Generally,  communication is done between the nodes which are placed at a far locations  in the field. Hence, the energy consumption required to communicate the nodes plays an important role. In this paper, the proposed algorithm is based on low-energy adaptive clustering hierarchical (LEACH) routing algorithm named as multi-hop cluster LEACH (MC LEACH) algorithm. The proposed protocol is a cross-layer routing protocol that deals with physical, MAC, and network layers for the analysis of energy consumption at individual node as well as in whole network.
