Demo Abstract : Reliable 6LoWPAN Networks with Multiple Border Routers

Multihop IPv6-based sensor networks support bidirectional internet traffic over tree-like topologies, centered around one or more gateways, or border routers. In real-world deployments, there are key benefits to using multiple border routers. This work presents our design and implementation of multiple RPL-based 6LoWPAN border routers in the Contiki operating system and outlines the added benefits in terms of deployment, reliability and energy consumption.
