          Terms Used in Routing for Low-Power and Lossy Networks

Abstract

   This document provides a glossary of terminology used in routing    requirements and solutions for networks referred to as Low-Power and    Lossy Networks (LLNs).  An LLN is typically composed of many embedded    devices with limited power, memory, and processing resources    interconnected by a variety of links.  There is a wide scope of    application areas for LLNs, including industrial monitoring, building    automation (e.g., heating, ventilation, air conditioning, lighting,    access control, fire), connected home, health care, environmental    monitoring, urban sensor networks, energy management, assets    tracking, and refrigeration.
