The wide deployment of lower-cost wireless devices will significantly
improve the productivity and safety of industrial plants while
increasing the efficiency of plant workers by extending the
information set available about the plant operations.  The aim of
this document is to analyze the functional requirements for a routing
protocol used in industrial Low-power and Lossy Networks (LLNs) of
field devices.  This memo provides information for the Internet community.

This document is a product of the Routing Over Low power and Lossy networks Working Group of the IETF.
