M-RPL: A Design Algorithm for WSNs with Mixed Traffic

Annop Monsakul
Abstract—A design of wireless sensor network to support traffic engineering for both unicast and multicast traffic is a very difficult problem. This paper proposes a design algorithm called M-RPL. It is IPv6 based routing protocol for low power, lossy Networks (LLNs) that concern routing of both types of traffic. However, since multicast traffic model could be employed in many situations and could be managed by various kinds of multicast routing protocols. The efficiency of M-RPL is evaluated for various traffic demands and networks of 100 node and the total unicast traffic in/out per node of 64, 128, 256, 512 and 1024 kbps, compared with RPL. The experimental results show that, in almost all cases, M-RPL give better performance in term of installation cost.

Index Terms—Traffic engineering, wireless sensor network, IPv6 routing protocol, spanning tree.
