Body
3GPP TSG CT WG 1 would like to inform the IETF Internet Area that 3GPP is
developing radio access technologies tailored for low power devices.

3GPP is also developing enhanced core network technologies to efficiently
handle such devices, e.g. in addition to the traditional packet data network
IPv4 and IPv6 connectivity types, 3GPP defines a new packet data network
connection type to enable connectivity through 3GPP access using any protocol
(e.g. 6lowpan).

3GPP TSG CT WG 1 is interested in co-operation with IETF in the area of LPWAN
to ensure that efficient protocols for low power devices are developed and that
the aforementioned 3GPP radio access technologies are considered in the LPWAN
discussions initiated in IETF.
