A standardized and flexible routing protocol enhances the performance of networks. IETF (International Engineering Task Force) standardized an RPL (Routing Protocol for Low Power and Lossy Networks) for low power and lossy networks. In this protocol, the ideal route is selected from source to destination. The paper evaluated the RPL performance in terms of average power and radio duty cycle. We simulate RPL with Cooja based on Contiki Operating System. This paper compares the average power and average duty cycle for nodes with a varying number of sinks. The proposed method decreases the consumption of power, listen (Rx), and transmit (Tx) duty cycle by increasing the number of sinks in the network.
