The configuration interface for the ieee802154 subsystem is exposed over the nl802154 netlink interface. It allows to configure various phy and MAC layer parameters and properties. For a convenient usage we offer a set of small command line utilities that allow these configurations, wpan-tools.

The tools are written in plain C and only minimal dependencies are needed (the netlink library libnl).

These tools contains:

iwpan main configuration utility (based on the wireless iw tool).

wpan-ping ping utility on IEEE 802.15.4 layer

wpan-hwsim configuration of the hardware simulator driver
