This specification defines the RPL Packet Information (RPI) NHC compression, a method to compress RPL Option (RFC6553) information within 6LoWPAN-style ("6lo") adaptation layers. This extends 6LoWPAN Header Compression (RFC6282), saving up to 48 bits in each frame compared to the uncompressed form in RFC 6553.
