In cooperation with ETSI (European Telecom Standards Institute) and IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force), the first FESTIVAL supported interoperability event will take on in Prague, Czech Republic from 17 to 19 July 2015. Focus will be on the emerging 6Tisch (IPv6 over the Timeslotted Channel Hopping mode of IEEE 802.15.4e) standard. The event will be a unique opportunity to meet the top experts in the fields as well as FESTIVAL partners.

As indicated within the 6tisch charter at IETF [1]: “The IEEE802.15.4e Timeslotted Channel Hopping (TSCH) is a recent amendment to the Medium Access Control (MAC) portion of the IEEE802.15.4 standard. TSCH is the emerging standard for industrial automation and process control LLNs, with a direct inheritance from WirelessHART and ISA100.11a. Defining IPv6 over TSCH, 6TiSCH is a key to enable the further adoption of IPv6 in industrial standards and the convergence of Operational Technology (OT) with Information Technology (IT).”
