"IPv6 requires the maximum transmission unit (MTU) to be at least 1280 Bytes. In contrast, IEEE 802.15.4's standard packet size is 127 octets."
Shouldn't that be 127 octets for MTU (i.e. layer 2 segment size)? Or it means on 802.15.4 we can have maximum IP packet size of 127? Sarmadys (talk) 04:31, 26 April 2014 (UTC)
I would interpret it to mean a Data Link Layer (aka Layer 2) MTU of 127 octets; it implies (but does not state outright) that a compliant IPv6 implementation operating over 802.15.4 must provide for transparent fragmentation and re-assembly at the Data Link Layer, so that the Network Layer (eg the IPv6 stack) will be free to work atomically in datagrams of up to 1280 octets without needing to explicitly invoke IPv6's (generally discouraged) end-to-end datagram fragmentation scheme.126.96.36.199 (talk) 11:42, 15 September 2015 (UTC)
I don't really see the reason for having the paragraph about Thread in this section. There are a lot of different specifications that build upon 6LoWPAN. Why should we highlight Thread and what does it say about 6LoWPAN? (188.8.131.52 (talk) 19:02, 9 August 2016 (UTC))
