This study presents questions between forwarding station and wireless sensor networks. In order to save energy and send data to faraway places, forwarding station is reasonably applied into wireless sensor networks. Besides forwarding station, sensor nodes are deployed to somewhere sensor nodes' power is difficult to be charged. Therefore, a sensor node can send its message to nearest place where is called the forwarding station. During the setup of forwarding station and communicating data of sensor nodes in this paper, simulations show that adding a forwarding station can make sensor nodes' lifetime longer.
