Small devices with limited CPU, memory, and power resources, so- called "constrained devices" (often used as sensors/actuators, smart objects, or smart devices) can form a network, becoming "constrained nodes" in that network. Such a network may itself exhibit constraints, e.g., with unreliable or lossy channels, limited and unpredictable bandwidth, and a highly dynamic topology.

                Terminology for Constrained-Node Networks


   The Internet Protocol Suite is increasingly used on small devices    with severe constraints on power, memory, and processing resources,    creating constrained-node networks.  This document provides a number    of basic terms that have been useful in the standardization work for    constrained-node networks.
