Technical Summary

    This document describes an architecture for the transport of IP
    Datagrams over ISO MPEG-2 Transport Streams (TS). The MPEG-2 TS has
    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.
