Ballot Text

Technical Summary:

The document discusses the use of the Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) protocol in devices that employ cellular networks as a communications medium, with a specific focus on techniques necessary to minimize power consumption.

Working Group Summary:

Nothing of significance to note.

Document Quality:

The document does not specify a protocol therefore the question regarding protocol implementation does not apply. There is an implication that there has been some implementation experience leading to the guidelines in the document but it is not explicitly stated thus.
