In today's life, wireless networks (WNs) are being used very fast in every area. They have been used in various applications, but finding some of the weaknesses, such as mobility, diversity, lack of resources and so on, finding an optimum route is very complex and problematic. By reducing the energy consumption on each node, the quality of the network can be ensured. Need to increase the battery life of the node to increase the network lifecycle. Therefore, reducing energy consumption can extend the battery life of the node. There is a fundamental research issue for finding and maintaining routes between multi-path routing nodes. This paper discusses routing protocols based on Zone Technology, which uses the energy, distance, and power of the node to maintain high circulation and accelerate the path search process and maintain high search. Zone-based Leader Election Routing Protocol (ZBLE) is one of the new protocols, which is a modified form of AOMDV. The Zone Leader Node and Zone Members are selected using the value of energy, position, and power of the node. The performance of the proposed communication protocol is evaluated with other existing protocols such as AODV and AOMDV. The simulation result is that when it receives the best path for data communication with proper energy conservation. Network simulator version 2.35 is used for simulation purpose. To support our ideas, we used the 5 quality of service parameters such as packet distribution ratio, energy consumption, network lifetime, and throughput.
