IPv6 Mesh over BLUETOOTH(R) Low Energy using IPSP

Carles Gomez, Seyed Darroudi, Teemu Savolainen, Michael Spörk

Research output: Other contribution


RFC 7668 describes the adaptation of 6LoWPAN techniques to enable IPv6 over Bluetooth low energy networks that follow the star topology. However, recent Bluetooth specifications allow the formation of extended topologies as well. This document specifies mechanisms that are needed to enable IPv6 mesh over Bluetooth Low Energy links established by using the Bluetooth Internet Protocol Support Profile. This document does not specify the routing protocol to be used in an IPv6 mesh over Bluetooth LE links.
