|Publication Date:||1 June 2017|
The present document outlines the motivation for IPv6 in IoT, the technical challenges to address IoT on constrained devices and networks, the impact on the IPv6 technology and protocols, the technology guidelines, the step by step process, the benefits, the risks, as applicable to IoT domains including: M2M, Energy, Industrial, Mining, Oil and gas, Smart city, Transportation (including EVs), etc.
IPv6-based IoT in this context refers to the connectivity network layers needed to support the communication between things. It is understood that a complete IoT system may use of an IoT architecture including but not necessarily an abstraction layer part of an IoT platform. The description of such IoT platform is out of the scope of the present document.
