Introduction

This document specifies the manner for transmitting IPv4 datagrams

over an ATM data link, both in a default manner and in the presence

of flow labelling via Ipsilon Flow Management Protocol [IFMP]. ATM

specific functions such as OAM cells, the CLP bit, and ABR RM cells

are not used. There are no reserved VCIs other than VPI = 0, VCI =

0, which indicates an unassigned cell; and VPI = 0, VCI = 15, which

is used for the default encapsulation. IFMP messages must be sent

using the default encapsulation.

1. Labels

Labels, as carried by IFMP, are realized on an ATM data link as

specific VPI/VCI...
