This paper explore the ways to deploy the network so that the workload is evenly distributed, thus the network overall behavior degrades in a smooth fashion. The sensors should be evenly deployed within the monitored area, we look at the approach where a set of more powerful nodes (routers) are designated for data relaying. We look at the approach to deploy these relaying nodes that are easy to implement in practice. In particular, we select sub-regions to deploy them at calculated density. We propose a simple method where the density is simply based on the size of the area whose data will be relayed by these nodes. Our experimental results verify the theoretical estimation of the routers' density.
