Abstract

   The Generic Framework for Static Context Header Compression and
   Fragmentation (SCHC) specification describes both, an application
   header compression scheme, and a frame fragmentation and loss
   recovery functionality for Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN)
   technologies.  SCHC offers a great level of flexibility that can be
   tailored for different LPWAN technologies.

   The present document provides the optimal parameters and modes of
   operation when SCHC is implemented over a Sigfox LPWAN.  This set of
   parameters are also known as a "SCHC over Sigfox profile."

1.  Introduction

   The Generic Framework for Static Context Header Compression and
   Fragmentation (SCHC) specification [RFC8724] defines both, a higher
   layer header compression scheme and a fragmentation and loss recovery
   functionality.  Both can be used on top of all the LWPAN systems
   defined in [RFC8376] . These LPWAN systems have similar
   characteristics such as star-oriented topologies, network
   architecture, connected devices with built-in applications, etc.

   SCHC offers a great level of flexibility to accommodate all these
   LPWAN systems.  Even though there are a great number of similarities
   between LPWAN technologies, some differences exist with respect to
   the transmission characteristics, payload sizes, etc.  Hence, there
   are optimal parameters and modes of operation that can be used when
