   IPv6 over Constrained Node Networks(6lo) Applicability & Use cases
                      draft-ietf-6lo-use-cases-01

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, PLC (IEEE
   1901), 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.
