This paper describes the architecture of a wireless Voice-over-IP (VoIP) intercom system using 6LoWPAN. The 6LoWPAN standard describes a method for allowing low-power/low cost devices to participate in the Internetof- things (IoT). By compressing the IPv6 headers, the standard achieves reasonable payload sizes and reduces power consumption as fewer bytes have to be transmitted. Performance results show the feasibility of the 6LoWPAN technology in VoIP.
