             6LoWPAN-GHC: Generic Header Compression for IPv6        over Low-Power Wireless Personal Area Networks (6LoWPANs)

Abstract

   RFC 6282 defines header compression in 6LoWPAN packets (where    "6LoWPAN" refers to "IPv6 over Low-Power Wireless Personal Area    Network").  The present document specifies a simple addition that    enables the compression of generic headers and header-like payloads,    without a need to define a new header compression scheme for each    such new header or header-like payload.
