Subject: WG Review: Routing Over Low power and Lossy networks (roll)

The Routing Over Low power and Lossy networks (roll) WG in the Routing
Area of the IETF is undergoing rechartering. The IESG has not made any
determination yet. The following draft charter was submitted, and is
provided for informational purposes only. Please send your comments to
the IESG mailing list (iesg@ietf.org) by 2016-12-09.

Charter: https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/charter-ietf-roll/

Low power and Lossy Networks (LLNs ) are made up of many embedded devices

with limited power, memory, and processing resources. They are
interconnected 
by a variety of links, such as IEEE 802.15.4, Bluetooth, Low Power WiFi,
wired 
or other low power PLC (Powerline Communication) links. LLNs are
transitioning 
to an end-to-end IP-based solution to avoid the problem of
non-interoperable 
networks interconnected by protocol translation gateways and proxies.

RFC7102 discusses ROLL specific aspects of LLNs, and RFC7228 provides
additional
terminology for constrained devices. RFC 5548, 5673, 5826, and 5876
describe the 
requirements for LLNs from several application perspectives.

The Working Group has focused on routing solutions for the areas:
connected 
home, building, and urban sensor networks. It has developed a Framework
that 
takes into consideration various aspects including high reliability in
the 
presence of time varying loss characteristics and connectivity while
permitting 
low-power operation with very modest memory and CPU pressure in networks 
potentially comprising a very large number (several thousands) of nodes.

The Working Group continues to focus on routing issues for LLN and to
maintain, 
improve and streamline the protocols already developed, including RPL and
MPL. 
The focus is on IPv6 work only. The Working Group will pay particular
attention 
to routing security and manageability (e.g., self routing configuration)
issues. 
It will also need to consider the transport characteristic the routing
protocol 
messages will experience. 

ROLL will coordinate closely with the working groups in other areas that
focus 
on constrained networks and/or constrained nodes, such as 6lo (Int), lwig
(Int) 
and CoRE (App). Other working groups such as PIM (rtg), BIER (rtg) and
MANET 
(rtg) will be consulted as needed. The Working group will align with the
6man 
(Int) WG when needed.

Work Items are:

- Guidance in using RFC6553, RFC6554, and IPv6-in-IPv6 encapsulation. 

- Additional protocol elements to reduce packet size and the amount of
required 
  routing states

- Automatic selection of MPL forwarders to reduce message replication. 

- Data models for RPL and MPL management.

- Multicast enhancements algorithms.
