ANEP specifies a mechanism for encapsulating Active Network frames for transmission over different media. The suggested format allows use of an existing network infrastructure (such as IP [RFC791] or IPv6 [RFC1883]) or transmission over the link layer. In order to support ongoing research, the proposed mechanism is as generic and extensible as possible. This mechanism allows co-existence of different execution environments and proper demultiplexing of received packets.
