This document provides a glossary of terminology used in routing
requirements and solutions for networks referred to as Low-Power and
Lossy Networks (LLNs).  An LLN is typically composed of many embedded
devices with limited power, memory, and processing resources
interconnected by a variety of links.  There is a wide scope of
application areas for LLNs, including industrial monitoring, building
automation (e.g., heating, ventilation, air conditioning, lighting,
access control, fire), connected home, health care, environmental
monitoring, urban sensor networks, energy management, assets
tracking, and refrigeration.

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