15-12-0523-00-0l2r Submission Layer 2 Forwarding for Embedded IP Geoff Mulligan 6LoWPAN WG Chair IPSO Alliance Chair
15-12-0523-00-0l2r Submission Problems with “Route Over” One subnet per node Breaks lots of things
15-12-0523-00-0l2r Submission Benefits of “Mesh Under” Maintains appearance of “ethernet like” network Things just work
15-12-0523-00-0l2r Submission IP over “Foo” Many RFCs describe how to adapt IP to specific media RFC 4944 and RFC 6282 describe adapting IPv6 to 802.15.4 (2006) Required to make the media appear to be “ethernet like”
15-12-0523-00-0l2r Submission 6Lowpan is a mechanism to fit IPv6 into small data frames and improve transmission efficiency
15-12-0523-00-0l2r Submission 6LoWPAN and 15.4 When started, we assumed that 6LoWPAN would sit on top of “ethernet like” service All nodes are one IP hop away Like ethernet and like 802.11 Since there was no available IEEE standard we added support, in the form of a mesh header, to 6LoWPAN RFC 4919 defines the architecture of “forwarding at the link layer”
15-12-0523-00-0l2r Submission An Embedded Stack IEEE 802.15.4 Physical Layer IEEE 802.15.4 MAC layer 6LoWPAN IPv6 Application and other layers UDP / TCP SocketSNMP TFT P SE2.0 Routing ICMP Stack size < 20K RAM size < 4K Requires minimal MAC support Multiple Implementations – Open Source – Contiki/TOS – Atmel – Sensinode – Freescale – TI – ST Micro Layer 2 Forwarding
15-12-0523-00-0l2r Submission How 6LoWPAN works Stackable headers Stolen from IPv6 “Pay” only for what you use Only 3 bytes for compressed IPv6 header Only include mesh or fragmentation header if needed Extensible dispatch byte Defined in RFCs 4944 and 6282
15-12-0523-00-0l2r Submission 6LoWPAN compression X X XX X XX X
15-12-0523-00-0l2r Submission IPv6 Neighbor Discovery - Replaced ARP and DHCP (sort of) from IPv4 - Adds additional functionality - Stateless Address AutoConfiguration (SLAAC) - Router Identification - Duplicate Address Detection - Problems with ND for low bandwidth networks - Problems with 6lowpan ND
15-12-0523-00-0l2r Submission Why L2 Routing Simplifies higher layers – doesn't break IP Provides for hierarchical architecture Can better fit to idiosyncrasies of link Might provide improved performance Could provide more efficient multicast
15-12-0523-00-0l2r Submission Layer 2 in 802 IETF deals with the Internet Not networks or links Appears to be the most appropriate place
15-12-0523-00-0l2r Submission IETF Work 6Lowpan WG MANET ROLL CORE 6Man Ideas: SOLACE, LLN Futures, COMAN
15-12-0523-00-0l2r Submission Good Functionality Efficient multicasting Hierarchy of devices Multihop security
15-12-0523-00-0l2r Submission Issues Do we really need multicasting? Really, battery powered routers? Really? Rapid connectivity changes Wireless is not wired Are all nodes in the mesh in A IP subnet? Making use of 6lowpan mesh header What if we can't agree What functions of the MAC do we require (join)?
15-12-0523-00-0l2r Submission IEEE Layer 2 Forwarding If it was available we would have used it in 6LoWPAN When it is available we will use it.
