Abstract: This paper proposes a scalable, energy-efficient and scalable, energy efficient, delay bounded intra and inter cluster routing framework viz. GIICCF (Generalized Intra and Inter cluster chaining framework) for efficient data gathering in large scale wireless sensor networks. This approach extricates the benefits of both pure chain-based as well as pure cluster-based data gathering schemes in large scale Wireless Sensor Network (WSNs) without undermining with the drawbacks. GIICCF defines a localized energy-efficient chaining scheme among the member nodes within the cluster with bounded data delivery delay to the respective cluster-heads (CH) as well as enables the CH to deliver data to the Base station (BS) following an energy-efficient multi-hop fashion. Detailed experimental analysis and simulation results reveal GIICCF increases the performance of any pure cluster-based and chain-based protocols by a huge margin.
