       IPv6 over Low-Power Wireless Personal Area Network (6LoWPAN)                              Routing Header


   This specification introduces a new IPv6 over Low-Power Wireless    Personal Area Network (6LoWPAN) dispatch type for use in 6LoWPAN    route-over topologies, which initially covers the needs of Routing    Protocol for Low-Power and Lossy Networks (RPL) data packet    compression (RFC 6550).  Using this dispatch type, this specification    defines a method to compress the RPL Option (RFC 6553) information    and Routing Header type 3 (RFC 6554), an efficient IP-in-IP    technique, and is extensible for more applications.
