Default Network Tunneling

I have heard that if we do network tunneling we will get good out put from our network design. I am not sure about what tunneling. Can anyone give good explanation about tunneling.

I am not expert in tunneling. I beleive Tunneling is the transmission of data send from private network to public network. Some thing like internet traffic.

Just my 2 cents.

Tunneling, in the IP world, is generally any means of encapsulating IP packets within other IP packets; or sometimes, IPv6 packets within IPv4 packets. It's never a performance gain vs. the same native path. Perhaps you can explain in detail the topology you are considering, and why you believe you'll need a tunnel?
