ABSTRACT The first implementation of new E6 stack of networking protocols within the kernel of an operating system is presented. Stack E6 was developed to increase the efficiency of a network entirely built on the base of Ethernet technology. It uses a uniform hierarchical E6 address on all the levels and annuls TCP, UDP and IP protocols. The experimental implementation adds a new system call to the kernel of Linux and a new type of Ethernet E6 frame. All the application interface standards are saved according to RFC except of E6 address usage instead of IP address and instead of Ethernet MAC address as well.
