              An energy optimization routing scheme for LLSs
               draft-wang-roll-energy-optimization-scheme-00

Abstract

   Low-Power and Lossy Networks (LLNs) are composed of devices that
   have constraints on processing power, memory, and energy (battery
   power). It is obvious that conserving energy is especially important
   in the LLNs. This document is aimed at proposing an efficient and
   effective scheme to optimize the energy in the process of seeking
   the DAG root node.

1. Introduction

   IPv6 Routing Protocol for Low-Power and Lossy Networks (RPL) is
   specified in [RFC6550], which provides a mechanism whereby
   multipoint-to-point traffic from devices inside the LLN towards a
   central control point as well as point-to-multipoint traffic from
   the central control point to the devices inside the LLN are
   supported. The routing metrics and constraints are specified in
   [RFC6551], which provides a high degree of flexibility and a set of
   routing metrics and constraints. A variety of node
   constraints/metrics must be possible taken into account during path
   computation (see RFC[6551]).
