This document presents a performance evaluation of the Routing
Protocol for Low-Power and Lossy Networks (RPL) for a small outdoor
deployment of sensor nodes and for a large-scale smart meter network.
Detailed simulations are carried out to produce several routing
performance metrics using these real-life deployment scenarios.
Please refer to the PDF version of this document, which includes
several plots for the performance metrics not shown in the plain-text
version.  This document is not an Internet Standards Track specification;
it is published for informational purposes.
