Abstract

This document describes an architecture for the transport of IP
Datagrams over ISO MPEG-2 Transport Streams (TS). The MPEG-2 TS has
been widely accepted not only for providing digital TV services but
also as a subnetwork technology for building IP networks. Examples
of systems using MPEG-2 include the Digital Video Broadcast (DVB) and
Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) Standards for Digital
Television.

The document identifies the need for a set of Internet standards
defining the interface between the MPEG-2 Transport Stream and an IP
subnetwork. It suggests a new encapsulation method for IP datagrams
and proposes protocols to perform IPv6/IPv4 address resolution, to
associate IP packets with the properties of the Logical Channels
provided by an MPEG-2 TS.
