lightweight protocol

A communications protocol designed with less complexity in order to reduce overhead. For example, it may use fixed-length headers because they are faster to parse than variable-length headers. To keep the memory requirement low, a lightweight protocol may eliminate many options that are part of the standard. See lightweight.
