Abstract: The emergence of 6LoWPAN makes it possible that Wireless Sensor Networks access to the Internet. However, the cost of IP communication between 6LoWPAN wireless sensor node and external internet node is still relatively high. This paper proposed a new addressing configuration and compression scheme in 6LoWPAN network called IPHC-NAT, which largely reduced the proportion of the IP header in 6LoWPAN packet, designed and constructed a bidirectional data transmission gateway to connect 6LoWPAN wireless sensor node with IPv6 client. The experimental results show the feasibility of the design of IPHC-NAT and the data transmission efficiency has significantly been improved compared to the original 6LoWPAN network.


Keywords: 6LoWPAN, Wireless Sensor Networks, IPHC, NAT, gateway.
