Existing IP-in-IP encapsulation technologies are not adequate for efficient load balancing of IP-in-IP traffic across IP networks. This document specifies additional IP-in-IP encapsulation technology, referred to as IP-in-UDP (User Datagram Protocol), which can facilitate the load balancing of IP-in-IP traffic across IP networks.
