Bluetooth Smart is the brand name for the Bluetooth low energy feature (hereinafter, "Bluetooth LE") in the Bluetooth specification defined by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group [BTCorev4.1]. Bluetooth LE is a radio technology targeted for devices that operate with very low-capacity (e.g., coin cell) batteries or minimalistic power sources, which means that low power consumption is essential. Bluetooth LE is an especially attractive technology for Internet of Things applications, such as health monitors, environmental sensing, proximity applications, and many others.

                    IPv6 over BLUETOOTH(R) Low Energy


   Bluetooth Smart is the brand name for the Bluetooth low energy    feature in the Bluetooth specification defined by the Bluetooth    Special Interest Group.  The standard Bluetooth radio has been widely    implemented and available in mobile phones, notebook computers, audio    headsets, and many other devices.  The low-power version of Bluetooth    is a specification that enables the use of this air interface with    devices such as sensors, smart meters, appliances, etc.  The low-    power variant of Bluetooth has been standardized since revision 4.0    of the Bluetooth specifications, although version 4.1 or newer is    required for IPv6.  This document describes how IPv6 is transported    over Bluetooth low energy using IPv6 over Low-power Wireless Personal    Area Network (6LoWPAN) techniques.
