With the rapid advancement in the Internet of things, protocols are challenged to perform routing with low power over lossy networks (RPLs). Performance analysis of RPL attracted many researchers in the field. However, to the best of our knowledge, limited or no studies have been made to develop heterogeneous analytical models that aim at the classification and ranking of RPL deployments based on combinations of desired properties. In this paper, we develop an analytical framework that captures the effectiveness of RPL and enables its sound evaluation and classification. Performance metrics include power consumption, churn in, received packets, and duty cycle, to name but a few. The obtained results based on our analytical framework confirms its effectiveness compared to the simulation results obtained in the literature. The best performance is noted for the deployments with 50 m of range and for different number of nodes.
