Smart home profiles for 6LoWPAN devices
Supplement 57 to ITU-T G-series Recommendations addresses Internet protocol version 6 (IPv6) adaptation layers for smart home systems, where embedded devices communicate with each other over low power and lossy networks (LLNs) for the purpose of sensor data collection and equipment control by using IPv6 over low power wireless personal area network (6LoWPAN) technology. Devices in smart home systems include home appliances, home energy equipment and various sensors within and around the home. Assumed applications for the communication include energy management, healthcare, home security and smart metering, while excluding broadband applications or mobile applications.

This Supplement addresses both IP-based wired and wireless low-power communications for smart home, and provides supplemental information to Recommendations ITU-T G.9903 and ITU‑T G.9959. Additional information on other ITU-T G-Series Recommendations may be provided in future revisions of this Supplement.
