   IPv6 over Constrained Node Networks(6lo) Applicability & Use cases
                      draft-hong-6lo-use-cases-03

Abstract

   This document describes the applicability of IPv6 over constrained
   node networks (6lo) and use cases.  It describes the practical
   deployment scenarios of 6lo technologies with the consideration of
   6lo link layer technologies and identifies the requirements.  In
   addition to IEEE 802.15.4, various link layer technologies such as
   ITU-T G.9959 (Z-Wave), BLE, DECT-ULE, MS/TP, NFC, LTE MTC, and IEEE
   802.15.4e(6tisch) are widely used at constrained node networks for
   typical services.  Based on these link layer technologies, IPv6 over
   networks of resource-constrained nodes has various and practical use
   cases.  To efficiently implement typical services, the applicability
   and consideration of several design space dimensions are described.
