The packet scheduling is essential and plays an important role to sense the element nodes with resource constraints in Wireless Networks. The packet scheduling scheme also scale the energy consumption and end-to-end information transmission delay in time period and non-real-time information packets during wireless transmission. The proposed Priority based Packet Scheduling (PPS) technique has a tendency to overcome the issues based on priority queues in a wireless network. The priority queue has three levels at each node, except those at the last virtual hierarchy level in the zone-based topology of wireless network. In the meantime packet square are measured and placed in the highest-priority queue and might pre-empt information packets in alternative queues. In the non-real-time period packet square are measured and placed into two alternative queues supported at a particular threshold of their calculable interval. The time period and non-real time information has two queues in a leaf node, since they did not receive information from alternative nodes which causes scale back end-to-end delay. The proposed PPS technique has affinity to evaluate performance through simulations for the time period and non-real-time information. Simulation results illustrate that the PPS Scheme outperforms typical schemes in terms of average information waiting time and end-to-end delay.
