Abstract: As while transmitting packets or data in the network, multiple number of traversal can occur because of the number of links in the data transfer route of source and destination and also the links in the relative position of the link are not accurate. But with some previous efforts it is able to calculate the optimal cost with required number of links in layer transmission but again there occurs the problem of power conjunction means it is more and more difficult to compute the optimal cost along with optimal power. To overcome this problem this paper synthesizes on existing methodology related to optimal path selection through which it exactly finds out the number of links layer which are essential for source to destination packet delivery and highlight towards how to compute the path with optimal cost along with optimal power.
