Technical Summary This document discusses the applicability of RPL in Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) networks. Working Group Summary The applicability statement series from the ROLL WG tends to involve small subsets of the WG, as there are typically few members of the WG who are involved in a specific industry. The industries represented by this document are new to the IETF process; the document has taken a long time to be produced and reviewed by the industry involved as this industry is used to closed proprietary verticals, is not used to collaborating (in public) with competitors. The move to a new document editor was required to close certain issues, and finalize the document. Document Quality While in some cases applicability statements in other WG have been published as BCP or Informational, the applicability statements from the ROLL WG are in essence industry specific profiles of IETF Standards. Standards Track is appropriate for these specifications; they are intended to be used as part of procurement and compliance work. Personnel The document shepherd Michael Richardson. The responsible AD is Alvaro Retana.
