Analysis of RPL Power Consumption in 6LoWPAN Ecosystem using COOJA Simulator
The vision behind the IoT comprises of embedded devices (ED), which also called as intelligent objects, characterized by low power, limited memory capacity, small size and less cost to be connected to the Internet by using Wireless Sensor Network (WSN). Thus, Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) introduced IPv6 Low Power Area Network (6LoWPAN) as a standard network for ED. Nevertheless, communication between ED with 6LoWPAN network demands special design considerations for instance simple, compressible, and suits for most applications protocol needs. Among the protocol of 6LoWPAN network, RPL is the best protocol but the Power Consumption (PC) of RPL is high when it implements in large network. Therefore, this paper presents the analysis of RPL PC in four parameters (CPU power, listen power, LPM power and transmit power) in 6LoWPAN ecosystem using COOJA simulator. The result shows the total of PC is increase with the increasing of number of nodes and transmission range (TR).
