 Technical Summary

This document describes a set of Extension Headers for the 
Unidirectional Lightweight Encapsulation (ULE), RFC4326. The 
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.

The Extension Header formats specified in this document define
extensions appropriate to both ULE and the Generic Stream
Encapsulation (GSE) defined to support the second generation framing
structure defined by Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) family of
specifications.
