In this paper, a performance evaluation of the Routing Protocol for Low power and Lossy Networks (RPL) is presented. Detailed simulations are carried out to produce several routing performance metrics using a set of real-life scenarios. A real outdoor network was reproduced in simulation with the help of topology and link quality data. Behaviors of such a network in presence of RPL, their reason and potential areas of further study/improvement are pointed out.
