draft-ietf-6lo-btle describes the adaptation of 6LoWPAN techniques to enable IPv6 over Bluetooth low energy networks that follow the star topology. However, recent Bluetooth specifications allow the formation of extended topologies as well. This document defines how IPv6 is transported over Bluetooth low energy mesh networks.
