Trend Report: Creating truly open cities

6LoWPAN, or Internet Protocol version 6 over Low Power Wireless Personal Area Networks, is an open standard defined by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) standards body. Just as the internet allowed different networks to be able to talk to each other and share information, 6LoWPAN performs a similar function for the Internet of Things (IoT) by allowing plenty of devices on networks to talk to each other and share information.

 

In this guide we explain the importance of 6LoWPAN to creating truly open and interoperable smart cities as well as examine other developments in the open standards movement that will be key to helping city authorities ensure future smart projects reach full maturity.
