With 6LoWPAN a technology has emerged that allows the use of IPv6 on small and tiny sensors. Specified by the IETF and implemented by IoT operating systems like Contiki, RIOT, Zephyr and Linux it helps to bridge the gap between well known IP based networks and small hardware with limited battery life and connectivity. It also became a base component of other specifications like ZigBee IP/NAN or Thread.
In this talk Stefan will explain quickly what makes 6LoWPAN interesting and how it is used today. From his experience of being one of the core developers of the linux-wpan and 6LoWPAN stack in the Linux Kernel he will show how you can setup a 6LoWPAN network.
The talk will provide a run through of setting up and deploying a 6LoWPAN based network. Explaining the needed background and protocol specifics at each step while focusing on the result.
