Abstract

The design of Low-Power and Lossy Networks (LLNs) is generally focused on saving energy, which is often a very constrained resource. Other constraints, such as memory capacity and duty cycle restrictions on LLN devices, usually derive from that primary concern. Energy is often available only from primary batteries that are expected to last for years or is scavenged from the environment in very limited amounts. Any protocol that is intended for use in LLNs must be designed with a primary focus on saving energy, which is a strict requirement.
