Unidirectional Lightweight Encapsulation
|Internet protocol suite|
Because of the very low protocol overhead, it is especially suited for IP over Satellite services (where every bit counts). Such a system is for example DVB-S. However, ULE can also be used in the context of DVB-C and DVB-T, theoretically in every system which is based on MPEG transport streams (e.g., ATSC).
- IP over DVB
- MPEG transport stream
- Multiprotocol Encapsulation (MPE)
- Internet Protocol Datacasting (IPDC) for DVB-H
- Interactive television
The ipdvb Working Group maintains a list of ULE implementations.
