In this paper we introduced a novel Linear Programming framework to model sensor network lifetime when data reduction through compression is utilized. Comparative analysis of three data compression and forwarding strategies show that neither data compression nor flow balancing can achieve the maximal possible sensor network lifetime when optimized independently. The comparisons reveal that jointly optimizing data compression and load balancing results in up to an order of magnitude longer network lifetimes than non-optimized data compression and load balancing.
