This document describes In-band Network Telemetry for 6TiSCH Networks, offering a flexible monitoring solution with minimal resource consumption and communication overhead while supporting a wide range of monitoring operations and strategies for dealing with various network scenarios and use cases. It enables 6TiSCH networks to collect per-packet and per-hop monitoring information by piggybacking telemetry information onto the data packets by exploiting the remaining space in the IEEE 802.15.4e frames, thus not impacting network behavior and performance. This document also discusses the data fields and associated data types for 6TiSCH INT mechanism.
