Abstract: It is expected that almost every day electronic devices will be connected to the existing internet infrastructure in the context of Internet of Things (IoT). These devices will enable to sense and actuate the physical world. It is foreseen that miniaturized e-health devices will enable monitoring vital health of patients. There exist some studies on networking these e-health devices within the Internet. In this realm, several network protocols are being standardized. 6LoWPAN of IETF is one of these efforts where some set of protocols can be stacked over IEEE 802.15.4 radio. However, it is not clear that which ideal protocol stack for transmission of health data can be adopted well. The novelty of this work is that we studied determination of ideal protocol stack for transmitting health data over 6LoWPAN IoT networks. So then, we carried extensive simulations over Cooja simulator. The compelling results are presented in this work. The results show that 6LoWPAN IoT health networks can be used to serve vital health data of patients.
Keywords: health data / Data over 6LoWPAN / 6LoWPAN IoT Networks / ideal protocol stack
