Lightweight Internet Protocol Design (LWIP) BOF

Technologies are evolving, and we keep inventing smaller things. Most Internet protocols are designed for the full capable devices and do not consider energy constrained and computational or communicational constrained devices. For most devices that are commonly used in the Internet of Things applications, they are resource constrained. First, They are built on top of the constrained computing platform, e.g., with 8-bit microcontrollers and limited RAM and ROM. Secondly, the connectivity between the nodes and the outside network is constrained, e.g., some links go down to 20kbps and with limited delivery probability.

Problems and working directions include:
