ISA100.11a is a Working Group at the ISA SP100 standard committee that covers Wireless Systems for Industrial Automation and Process Control. The WG is mandated to design a scalable, industrial grade LowPAN for devices such as sensors, valves, and actuators. The upcoming standard uses the 6LoWPAN format for the network header. It also introduces the concept of a Backbone Router to merge small LoWPANs via a high speed transit and scale the ISA100.11a network. This paper proposes an IPv6 version of the Backbone Router concept.
