In this paper wireless sensor network (WSN) is a large network consists of a group of distributed networks, in this network no. of sensors are interconnected by means of wireless communication channels. Wireless sensor network is one of the growing technologies for sensing and performing the different tasks, it increases data traffic. So that large volume of data transmission and restricted bandwidth congestion occurs. This paper review Data-Link Layer Techniques, Network Layer Techniques, Transport Layer Techniques, and Cross-Layer Based Techniques to control data congestion with related these protocols.
