Technical Summary IEEE Std 802.15.4 defines Information Elements (IEs) that can be used to extend 802.15.4 in an interoperable manner. The IEEE 802.15 Assigned Numbers Authority (ANA) manages the registry of the Information Elements. This document formulates a request for ANA to allocate a number from that registry for IETF, and describes how the IE is formatted to provide subtypes. Working Group Summary This is document is of relevance to several IETF working groups across multiple areas. Document Quality There are no known implementations of this mechanism in the IETF context but several WGs have expressed interest in using this IE once it is allocated to the IETF. This document is being AD sponsored but the draft was sent to multiple WG mailing lists and an RG mailing list for review. All of the comments received on the reviewed version were addressed in this current version. Personnel Francesca Palombini is the document shepherd. Suresh Krishnan is the responsible AD.
