Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) once deployed, are left unattended for extended periods of time. During this time, the network can experience a range of faulty scenarios. If a sink node fails, data gathered by sensor nodes may not be delivered to a destination. One way to increase the reliability of such WSNs is to deploy with more than one sink. In this paper, we formalise the problem of many-to-many data aggregation scheduling in WSNs with multiple sinks and establish a lower bound on the number of nodes with multiple slots.
