Design of reliable wireless sensor network (WSN) need to address the failure of single or multiple network components and implementation of the techniques to tolerate the faults occurred at various levels. The issues and requirements of reliability improvement mechanism depend on the available resources and application for which the WSN is deployed. This paper discusses the different modeling approaches to evaluate the reliability and classification of the approaches to improve it. Also the

From the results of the analysis we highlight the challenges and the characteristics of the sensor network affects the reliability and give some scope of future research directions in order to enhance reliability.
