6lo and 6lowpan have standardized a stateless IPv6 and UDP compression method for mesh networks. SCHC proposes a generic compression mechanism that can be applied to any protocol stack. The lpwan working group is focusing on star topologies for IPv6, UDP and CoAP header compression and fragmentation. This document summarizes the differences between 6lo and SCHC and possible combination of SCHC and 6lo.
