Encapsulation - Definition

Encapsulation, in computer networking, refers to the process of putting the packets from one protocol inside the packets of another protocol. An example of this is TCP/IP encapsulation in NetWare servers, where IPX/SPX packets are placed inside TCP/IP packets, enabling Novell NetWare to use TCP/IP for transport while still allowing the network operating system to get the data it needs from IPX/SPX.
