At IETF 69, the 6lowpan WG decided to start work on an Architecture Document. Instead of developing this as an I-D first, we decided to start development on this Wiki and only move to the I-D format later.
Specific issues that need to be addressed in the Architecture Document might include:
- ["Network Model"]: How is the IPv6 network mapped to 802.15.4 concepts.
- ["Performance and QoS"]
- ["Management and Robustness"]
In addition, the following documents will contain architecture related text:
- ["Neighbor discovery"]
- ["Bootstrapping and Commissioning"] (may be one or two documents, we did not decide)
Requirements will also be collected in:
- ["Routing Requirements"]
Note that there also is an ["Application Scenarios"] document, which already has taken the form of an I-D (with additional contributions required).
