Dear roll folks, especially for the chairs:

Let me introduce my issue (again). I would appreciate if I can have some comments on the idea or suggestion for alternate approaches.

The issue I have is how to deploy a mesh network over even larger network, maybe up to 10,000 nodes, with very low application traffic. At the same time, we need communication channels for relatively-low latency (few seconds) broadcast for commanding and enough reliable broadcast file transfer. The draft draft-doi-roll-mpl-nan-requirements-00 introduces the requirement.

For the objective, MPL seems to be the only choice for us. But it lacks some functionarities for operation and management. One of the spec we need is to configure and/or update MPL forwarder after deployment. My proposal for configuration and re-configuration is DHCPv6 option: http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-doi-roll-mpl-parameter-configuration-03

I expect this would be a part of a ZigBee profile. I would appreciate if the WG can discuss the topic as WG item.

Best Regards,

    Neighborhood area networks (NAN) is expected to use MPL to distribute
    information over wireless mesh network with 6lowpan/802.15.4.  This
    document is to describe expected use case and requirements of NAN,
    based on OpenSG requirements.
