RFC 7668 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 specifies the mechanisms needed to enable IPv6 over mesh networks composed of Bluetooth low energy links established by using the Bluetooth Internet Protocol Support Profile.
