The MPEG-2 Transport Stream (TS) has been widely accepted not only
for providing digital TV services, but also as a subnetwork
technology for building IP networks.
This document describes a Unidirectional Lightweight Encapsulation
(ULE) mechanism for the transport of IPv4 and IPv6 Datagrams and
other network protocol packets directly over the ISO MPEG-2 Transport
Stream as TS Private Data. ULE specifies a base encapsulation format
and supports an extension format that allows it to carry additional
header information to assist in network/Receiver processing.
