Technical Summary

   The Internet Protocol Suite is increasingly used on small devices
   with severe constraints, creating constrained node networks.  This
   document provides a number of basic terms that have turned out to be
   useful in the standardization work for constrained environments.
   
Working Group Summary

  The document originally was extracted as a stable part of the LWIG guidance document that 
the WG considered to be immediately useful.  After extraction, additional terminology was 
added on energy/power availability and usage.  This document was finished collectively by a 
number of people who worked in the constrained network area.  The WGLC was conducted on 
April 7 for two weeks. Five supports have been expressed on the mailing list, with positive 
discussion.  

Document Quality

This is a document that summarizes the terminologies that has been and will be used for 
people and groups that are working on constrained networks. This is generally considered to be a 
useful document for people to refer when they would like to find the definition of certain terms.  
Experts from Philips, Orange, Ericsson reviewed the document, from the time when it still was an 
individual document. Several wording details in the draft before the WGLC had been discussed 
and the draft was updated to incorporate these changes.
