Abstract

Master-Slave/Token-Passing (MS/TP) is a Medium Access Control (MAC) protocol for the RS-485 [TIA-485-A] physical layer and is used primarily in building automation networks. This specification defines the frame format for transmission of IPv6 [RFC2460] packets and the method of forming link-local and statelessly autoconfigured IPv6 addresses on MS/TP networks. The general approach is to adapt elements of the 6LoWPAN specifications ([RFC4944], [RFC6282], and [RFC6775]) to constrained wired networks, as noted below.
