                  xDSL Multi-Pair Bonding (G.Bond) MIB

Abstract

   This document defines a Management Information Base (MIB) module for
   use with network management protocols in TCP/IP-based internets.
   This document defines an extension to the Interfaces Group MIB with a
   set of common objects for managing multi-pair bonded Digital
   Subscriber Line (xDSL) interfaces, as defined in ITU-T
   Recommendations G.998.1, G.998.2, and G.998.3.  The textual
   conventions defining the bonding schemes are contained in a separate
   MIB module maintained by Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA).
   The MIB modules specific to each bonding technology are defined in
   G9981-MIB, G9982-MIB, and G9983-MIB, respectively.

1.  Introduction

   xDSL Multi-pair bonding allows a service provider to provide high-
   bandwidth services to business and residential customers over
   multiple xDSL lines, with greater speed and resiliency than service
   over a single xDSL line, bridging the gap between xDSL and fiber-
