The term (IoT) Internet of Things is well thought-out to be the subsequent or next big prospect, and test, for the Internet engineering society, clients of technology, society and companies as a whole. It entails linking embedded devices such as home appliances, weather stations, sensors and even playthings to the networks that are based on Internet Protocol (IP). According to recent surveys it is obvious that the number of IP-enabled embedded devices is growing fast, and even though tough to guess, will definitely outnumber the figure of personal computers (PCs) and servers in the prospect. Through the progresses made over the past decade in low-power radio, battery, microcontroller and microelectronic technology, the drift in the industry is for smart embedded devices called smart objects to turn out to be IP-enabled, and an essential part of the most recent services on the Internet. These services are no longer cyber, just including data created by humans, but are to become very associated to the physical world around us by counting sensor data, the monitoring and control of machines, and other sorts of physical context. We name this most modern frontier of the Internet, consisting of wireless low-power embedded devices, the Wireless Embedded Internet. In this paper we draw on the term low-power wireless area network (LoWPAN). This paper is all about 6LoWPAN, giving an overview of the technology and its future research challenges particularly taking routing, NEMO and Mobility into consideration.
