This recommended practice facilitates the routing of packets in dynamically changing wireless networks. Specifically it provides for automatic handling of route related capabilities such as: - Route establishment - Dynamic route reconfiguration -- Discovery and addition of new nodes -- Breaking of established routes -- Loss and recurrence of routes - Real time gathering of link status - Allowing for single hop appearance at the networking layer (not breaking standard L3 mechanisms) - Support of broadcast - Support of multicast - Effective frame forwardingThis recommended practice identifies protocols that route packets in a dynamically changing 802.15.4 network (changes on the order of a minute time frame), with minimal impact to route handling. The result is an extension of the area of coverage as the number of nodes increase.
