I am very pleased to see 6LoWPAN being considered and developed for other wireless standards.

I would like to propose the development of a 6LoWPAN adaptation layer for DECT Ultra Low Energy (ULE), as DECT can also be a very strong platform for the "internet of things" due to the number of networks being deployed annually.

DECT ULE is in many ways similar to BTLE (short packet size, network topology etc), but also has some unique properties compared to other wireless short-range standards which I believe makes it worthwhile to develop a 6LoWPAN adaptation layer.

DECT ULE MAC/PHY is currently being specified by ETSI so there will shortly be an interoperable radio interface.

Yesterday, I submitted an I-D version 0 for IPv6 transmission over DECT ULE.
This is still very much work in progress but I would like to have a frame for the specification work or at least make sure it is aligned with any initiatives to make a common 6LoWPAN adaptation layer (as discussed in this WG).

Comments are much appreciated.
Best Regards,
Peter Mariager
