Original Question: Maximum payload in AD6LoWPAN? by NagarjunaG
What is the maximum payload length the AD6LoWPAN data packet can carry?
What is the size of the data packet being transmitted by the Node to the Border Router?

The maximum application payload in the AD6LoWPAN node depends on the header compression (HC).
This max payload value is derived from the formula given in the table. Also shown in are values of the parameters and the calculations for the application payload.
Application Payload Size = (Max Buffer Size) - (PHY + MAC + 6LoWPAN + IPv6 + UDP)
Max Buffer Size
UDP Header Size
IPv6 Header Size
6LoWPAN Header Size
MAC Header Size
MAC Footer Size(CRC)
PHY Header Size
Without AD6LoWPAN Header Compression
Max Buffer Size = 400.
(PHY + MAC + 6LoWPAN (uncompressed) + IPv6 + UDP) = 77.
Application Payload Size = (400 – 77)= 323 Bytes <== (with No HC)
With AD6LoWPAN Header Compression
(PHY + MAC + 6LoWPAN (compressed) + UDP) = 54.
Application Payload Size = (400 – 54)= 346 Bytes <== (with HC)
(In this case IPv6 Header is compressed and replaced with 19 bytes of 6LoWPAN Header.)
Please note, the AD6LoWPAN uses Fragmentation mechanism for delivering any packet with payload more than 50 bytes.
