This document describes the process of binding/associating IPv4/IPv6
addresses with MPEG-2 Transport Streams (TS).  This procedure is known
as Address Resolution (AR) or Neighbor Discovery (ND).  Such address
resolution complements the higher-layer resource discovery tools that
are used to advertise IP sessions.

In MPEG-2 Networks, an IP address must be associated with a Packet ID
(PID) value and a specific Transmission Multiplex.  This document
reviews current methods appropriate to a range of technologies (such
as DVB (Digital Video Broadcasting), ATSC (Advanced Television Systems
Committee), DOCSIS (Data-Over-Cable Service Interface Specifications),
and variants).  It also describes the interaction with well-known
protocols for address management including DHCP, ARP, and the ND
protocol.  This memo provides information for the Internet community.

This document is a product of the IP over DVB
Working Group of the IETF.
