The deployment of thousands of tiny devices inter-networked together and accessible through the Internet is the result of the increasing trend towards enabling the concepts of Internet-of-Things. As these devices may be scattered in a unplanned way, a routing protocol is needed. The RPL protocol is the IETF proposed standard protocol for IPv6-based multi-hop Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN). RPL requires that communication paths go through a central router which may provide suboptimal paths… CONTINUE READING
