IETF75 Bar Bof: Applications in resource-constrained networks


  • When: Tuesday, 28 July, 7:30pm - ?
  • Where: TBD


The 6LoWPAN and ROLL WGs are laying the groundwork to make the Wireless Embedded Internet a reality, but what application protocols will we use? Request-response protocols like HTTP are a poor fit to a communication model with battery-operated, mostly sleeping nodes. The data formats are also perceived to be too chatty for the 50-60 byte payloads possible and to require too much code for the 8-bit and 16-bit processors dominating the Internet of Things. Still, it would be a mistake to start a new silo of application protocols that do not benefit from existing application area Internet experience.
