Evaluation and recommendations on IPv6 for the Internet of Things
This article presents a proposed reference model of IPv6 addressing plan for the Internet of Things. It starts by analyzing the IPv6 addressing structure and analyses the potential for a universal subnet addressing plan model. It continues by exploring the potential of addressing plan for the Interface ID (Host ID). It takes advantage of the work performed by the author in Mandat International and as Coordinator of the IoT6 European research project on IPv6 exploitation for the Internet of Things.
