      Ethernet-based xDSL multi-pair bonding (G.Bond/Ethernet) MIB
                draft-ietf-adslmib-gbond-eth-mib-06.txt

Abstract

   This document defines 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 Ethernet-based multi-pair bonded xDSL
   interfaces, defined in ITU-T recommendation G.998.2.

1.  Introduction

   The Ethernet-based xDSL Multi-Pair Bonding, a.k.a.  G.Bond/Ethernet,
   is specified in ITU-T G.998.2 recommendation [G.998.2], 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 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 GBOND-MIB
   [I-D.ietf-adslmib-gbond-mib] module.

2.  The Internet-Standard Management Framework
