6LoWPAN is connecting more things to the cloud. Low-power, IP-driven nodes and large mesh network support make this technology a great option for Internet of Things (IoT) applications. A powerful feature of 6LoWPAN is that while originally conceived to support IEEE 802.15.4 low-power wireless networks in the 2.4-GHz band, it is now being adapted and used over a variety of other networking media including Sub-1 GHz low-power RF, Bluetooth Smart, power line control (PLC) and low-power Wi-Fi. This white paper discusses key 6LoWPAN concepts to demonstrate how it enables the use of IPv6 over IEEE 802.15.4 radio links.
