                  ATM-Based xDSL Bonded Interfaces MIB

Abstract

   This document defines a Management Information Base (MIB) module for
   use with network management protocols in TCP/IP-based internets.
   This document proposes an extension to the GBOND-MIB module with a
   set of objects for managing ATM-based multi-pair bonded xDSL
   interfaces, as defined in ITU-T Recommendation G.998.1.

1.  Introduction

   ATM-Based Multi-Pair Bonding, a.k.a. G.Bond/ATM, is specified in
   ITU-T Recommendation G.998.1 [G.998.1], 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 an ATM stream.

   This specification can be viewed as an evolution of the legacy
   Inverse Multiplexing for ATM (IMA) technology [AF-PHY-0086], applied
   to xDSL with variable rates on each line/bearer channel.  As with the
   other bonding schemes, ATM bonding also allows bonding of up to 32
   individual sub-layers with variable rates, providing common
   functionality for the configuration, initialization, operation, and
   monitoring of the bonded link.

   The MIB module defined in this document defines a set of managed
   objects for the management of G.998.1 bonded interfaces, extending
   the common objects specified in the GBOND-MIB module [RFC6765].
