Hello All,

We experimented with Fragment forwarding and tried to understand the performance implications vis-à-vis per-hop reassembly.

Following is the detailed report:

To summarize, we found that fragment forwarding has some practical issues when it comes to forwarding efficiency or PDR and latency "on single channel 802.15.4". While similar concerns were been raised previously during IETF meetings, we tried to validate it with data.

Please let us know if you have any comments.
