Forwarding strategies for 6LoWPAN-fragmented IPv6 datagrams

  author={Andreas Weigel},
Recent efforts towards a fully standardized protocol stack (RPL, CoAP, 6LoWPAN) for “low power and lossy networks” (LLNs) contribute to realize the vision of the Internet of Things. 6LoWPAN is a central building block among these protocols, enabling the transmission of IPv6 datagrams using the IEEE 802.15.4 protocol for wireless mesh networks. To provide IPv6’ minimal MTU of 1280 bytes by means of the 127 byte frames of IEEE 802.15.4, 6LoWPAN defines a fragmentation mechanism. However, the use… CONTINUE READING
