Technical Summary

   This document provides the problem statement and design space for
   6LoWPAN routing. It defines the routing requirements for 6LoWPAN
   networks, considering the low-power and other particular
   characteristics of the devices and links. The purpose of this
   document is not to recommend specific solutions, but to provide
   general, layer-agnostic guidelines about the design of 6LoWPAN
   routing, which can lead to further analysis and protocol design.
