Technical Summary

   This document provides a glossary of terminology used in routing
   requirements and solutions for networks referred to as Low power and
   Lossy Networks (LLN).  An LLN is typically composed of many embedded
   devices with limited power, memory, and processing resources
   interconnected by a variety of links.  There is a wide scope of
   application areas for LLNs, including industrial monitoring, building
   automation (e.g.  Heating, Ventilating, Air Conditioning, lighting,
   access control, fire), connected home, healthcare, environmental
   monitoring, urban sensor networks, energy management, assets
   tracking, refrigeration.

Working Group Summary

   No concerns, the document had good support. 

Document Quality

   There was good support in the working group towards getting the 
   definitions precise enough to be useful, but not overly specific.

   This Informational document contains only terminology so cannot
   be implemented, but the WG is actively using this document as a
   base reference in other work.

   There is no formal language in this document.
