Abstract

   Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN) are technologies covering
   different applications based on long range, low bandwidth and low
   power operation.  The use of IETF protocols in the LPWAN technologies
   should contribute to the deployment of a wide number of applications
   in an open and standard environment where actual devices using LPWAN
   technologies will be able to communicate.  This document makes a
   survey of the principal characteristics of these technologies and
   provides the gaps for the integration on the IETF protocol stack.

Status of This Memo

   This Internet-Draft is submitted in full conformance with the
   provisions of BCP 78 and BCP 79.
