The focus of the 6TiSCH tests will be on:
- draft-ietf-6tisch-minimal
- draft-ietf-6tisch-6top-protocol
- secure joining
- backbone router operation.


The focus of the 6lo tests will be on specifications RFC4944, RFC6282 and RFC6775 adapted to:
- Constrained wired networks* (draft-ietf-6lo-6lobac-04)
- DECT Ultra Low Energy air interface* (draft-ietf-6lo-dect-ule-04)
- Bluetooth low energy air interface* (RFC 7668)
- Near Field Communication* (NFC) radio interface* (draft-ietf-6lo-nfc-03)
- IEEE 802.15.4 Networks (RFC 4944), both 2.4 GHz and 900 MHz*

(* if number of implementations permits)
