The quality of communication between any two users in multi-hop wireless sensor networks directly depends upon the path selection among the available paths between end-users. The issue of selecting the optimized path from source to a destination becomes the necessary criteria for effective communication between end-users. The art of work mainly focuses on the selection of the path which has the best available bandwidth however they do not consider other network parameters such as distance, energy, the intensity of traffic which plays a critical role in routing. In this paper, an algorithm is presented for the selection of optimized route from source to destination by considering different network parameters along with the bandwidth and rank is given to all the available routes from source to destinations per their weights. The paper is validated using network simulator.
