      Ethernet-Based xDSL Multi-Pair Bonding (G.Bond/Ethernet) 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 GBOND-MIB module with a set
   of objects for managing Ethernet-based multi-pair bonded Digital
   Subscriber Line (xDSL) interfaces, as defined in ITU-T Recommendation
   G.998.2.

1.  Introduction

   Ethernet-based xDSL Multi-Pair Bonding, a.k.a. G.Bond/Ethernet, is
   specified in ITU-T Recommendation G.998.2 [G.998.2], which defines a
   method for bonding (or aggregating) multiple xDSL lines (or
   individual bearer channels in multiple xDSL lines) into a single
   bidirectional logical link carrying Ethernet traffic.

   The MIB module defined in this document provides G.Bond/
   Ethernet-specific objects for the management of G.998.2 bonded
   interfaces, extending the common bonding objects specified in the
   GBOND-MIB module [RFC6765].

2.  The Internet-Standard Management Framework

   For a detailed overview of the documents that describe the current
   Internet-Standard Management Framework, please refer to section 7 of
   RFC 3410 [RFC3410].

   Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, termed
   the Management Information Base or MIB.  MIB objects are generally
   accessed through the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).
   Objects in the MIB are defined using the mechanisms defined in the
   Structure of Management Information (SMI).  This memo specifies a MIB
