6LoWPAN: An Open IoT Networking Protocol (Stefan Schmidt)-
With the raising importance of the Internet of Things (IoT), suitable networking protocols are getting their needed attention. For some IoT scenarios a normal TCP/IP networking stack might be perfectly fine but for small, maybe battery powered, devices with limited wireless functionality this might be to much of an overhead already.
On the other hand one would like to build up on the already existing and reality-proven TCP/IP networking code driving the internet. By specifying an IPv6 adaptation layer and various compression techniques 6LoWPAN allowed the usage of IPv6 networking even on tiny IoT devices, such as sensors. While 6LoWPAN started out as an adaptation layer for IEEE 802.15.4 based networks it is now also used in Bluetooth LE and work is ongoing to adopt it for other technologies like NFC, DECT/ULE, power-line, etc.
