This draft analyze the development and deployment of the existing IETF Low weight IPv6 protocols in the IOT (Internet Of Things) industry. Taking consideration on the constrained resource nature of devices, the IETF low weight IPv6 protocols, including 6LowPan, RPC and COAP, fit perfectly in the IOT scenarios. Recent development and promotion of Zigbee IP and IPSO also extend the use of these low weight IPv6 protocols.
