3GPP TSG CT WG 1 would like to inform the IETF Internet Area that 3GPP is developing radio access technologies tailored for low power devices. 3GPP is also developing enhanced core network technologies to efficiently handle such devices, e.g. in addition to the traditional packet data network IPv4 and IPv6 connectivity types, 3GPP defines a new packet data network connection type to enable connectivity through 3GPP access using any protocol (e.g. 6lowpan). 3GPP TSG CT WG 1 is interested in co-operation with IETF in the area of LPWAN to ensure that efficient protocols for low power devices are developed and that the aforementioned 3GPP radio access technologies are considered in the LPWAN discussions initiated in IETF.
