This document contains the Simple Encapsulation, a simple and lean encapsulation mechanism 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. One example is the Digital Video Broadcast (DVB), specified by standards published by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI).
