Abstract

This RFC describes a method of encapsulating IP datagrams on top of Acoustical Transmission Media (ATM). This is a non-recommended standard. Distribution of this memo is unnecessary.

Overview

The modern laptop computer of today often contains the hardware needed to perform wireless communications by using Acoustical Transmission Media, i.e. sound waves. Until this moment there has been no standard on how to run IP on such media. This document is an attempt to fill this silence.

Frame transmission

The IP datagram is divided into four-bit chunks, in network beep order, and converted to characters according to the table below. A single "b" character is prepended as a frame start signal, the characters are then transmitted in ordinary morse code by modulating a steady tone on and off. The frequency of this tone is also known as the Acoustical Signature (AS number) of the sender.
