  • In the paradigms of the Internet of things (IoT), sensor nodes could collect the data through the Wireless sensor network (WSN), and could be managed and accessed by human users through the Internet. There are many challenges remain. Taking advantage of IPv6, IPv6 over Low-power personal area networks (6LoWPANs) implemented on resource constrained devices makes the connection possible and easier. This paper is contributing on constructing architecture of the end-to-end communication system based on 6LoWPAN gateway, which enabled convergence of IPv6 network and low-power wireless networking, featuring encapsulating 6LoWPAN adapter layer in a Network adapter driver (NAD) of personal computer. Using real commercial deployment, the result of application test bed shows that the IPv6 hosts could be interactive with IP-based sensor nodes through 6LoWPAN gateway with acceptable latency and packet loss.
