The IPTube E2 is used to interconnect Ethernet LANs through an IP network. Ethernet frames that are destined for a device located on the remote network are encapsulated into IP packets. The IP packets, with the encapsulated Ethernet frames, are sent to the IP address of the destination network's IPTube E2 where the IP envelope is removed and the original Ethernet Frames are delivered to the destination network's Ethernet device.


The Ethernet MAC layer source addresses that are active on the internal LAN are stored in a filtering database. Packets with a MAC destination that do not match a MAC address entry for the receiving port are encapsulated in an IP packet that is forwarded to the remote network.

Service Quality Packet Prioritizing
The IPTube E2  uses the Type of Service byte in the IP packets to prioritize the encapsulated Ethernet frames. The setting of the TOS byte can be used to ensure that real time data from the IPTube E2  is ensured high priority. Additionally 802.1p/q VLAN tagging provides layer 2 prioritization.
