Abstract

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

Internet-Draft               G.Bond ATM MIB                February 2012

1.  Introduction

   The ATM-Based Multi-Pair Bonding, a.k.a.  G.Bond/ATM, is specified in
   ITU-T G.998.1 recommendation [G.998.1], which defines a method for
   bonding (or aggregating) of multiple xDSL lines (or individual bearer
   channels in multiple xDSL lines) into a single bi-directional logical
   link carrying an ATM stream.

   This specification can be viewed as an evolution of the legacy
   Inverse Multiplexing over 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
   [I-D.ietf-adslmib-gbond-mib] module.
