For large-scale Low-Power and Lossy Networks (LLNs), communications between nodes in different Personal Area Networks (PANs) (i.e., inter-PAN communications) typically have to traverse long routing paths, even for cases in which two nodes may be located physically close to each other. Techniques herein provide a novel mechanism to improve inter-PAN communications by utilizing the nodes that are located at the boundary of PANs.
