This reflects the level of multi-electrical-hop routing utilized in the IP layer.
To support this architecture, Differentiated service code points (DSCPs) in the IP layer QoS need to be mapped to the satellite-dependent class of service, which can be archived for the use of an ETSI BSM SI-SAP interface.
Then the NC layer encapsulates the encoded packets with a NC packet header and forwards them to IP layer. Note that the redundant factor R can be zero when the estimated link error rate is zero.
Further, the RXI handles both Internet Protocol Version 4 and version 6, as well as transition between the two, and is supported by the IP Layer Manager, which is a new open, standards-based and modular system for managing large-scale wireless IP networks.
When IPSec is applied to a data packet at IP Layer 3, a header or trailer or both is added to the packet to let the receiving system know that IP security is used and to call out the associated algorithms.
To manage and provision IP services on the GX 550 and CBX 500 ATM backbone Extant is using the Ascend IP Navigator(TM) software, which adds IP Layer 3 routing to Ascend's Multiservice ATM and Frame Relay WAN switches and delivers "absolute" Quality of Service (QoS).
Unlike traditional firewalls that act as packet filters at the IP layer, a significant problem today is the data that is sent over the IP layer inside the filtered packet.
The optical Internet is built on a purely photonic backbone, with the service or IP layer of the network directly linked with the transport or photonic layer.
