Wireless Sensor Networks are exploited in multiple applications. There are some issues like important data loss, many times during transmission and reception process by the small tiny sensor nodes presents in the WSNs. Further constraints like energy efficiency are present. To overcome such constraints the cooperative caching technique is used. If this technique is used efficiently then the networks lifetime can be enhanced and data loss may also reduce during transmission and reception process. We have discussed some techniques of cooperative caching. Main purpose of the paper is to provide the brief proposal of different techniques which are used for the enhancement of the networks parameter like energy, throughput and power all the proposed techniques are closely related with each other.
