Abstract: The explosion of innovative, low-priced sensors and devices popularly known as the Internet of Things(IoT) have great business potential. 6LoWPAN is an important IP (Internet Protocol) layer based technology used to connect devices in IoT. 6LowPAN is a IP based networking technology that carries IPV6 packets efficiently using small link layer frames as prescribed by IEEE 802.15.4. However there are confrontations such as packet size of IPV6 is much more immense than the most immense IEEE 802.15.4 frame size, challenges while compressing IPV6 header in Low Power Wireless Personal Area Networks (6LowPAN). Excess use of multicast causes 6LoWPAN inefficient and sometimes unrealistic in a “low power and lossy network”. This paper is a survey on different approaches used for Header Compression such as LowPAN_HC1, LowPAN_HC2 and LowPAN_IPHC. These approaches are covered in “RFC 4919 (IPV6 Over Low Power Wireless Personal Area Networks (6LowPAN): Overview, Assumptions, Problem Statement and Goals)”, “RFC 4944
Keywords: Internet of Things (IoT), 6LowPAN, Header Compression (HC)
