Technical Summary

  This document defines a Management Information Base (MIB) module for
  use with network management protocols in the Internet community.  In
  particular, it describes objects used for managing parameters of the
  "Very High Speed Digital Subscriber Line 2 (VDSL2)" interface type,
  which are also applicable for managing Asymmetric Digital Subscriber 
  Line ADSL, ADSL2, and ADSL2+ interfaces.

Working Group Summary

   The WG process was smooth with no real controversies. This is a 
   small WG and only a small number of individuals participated in 
   reviewing and commenting on the document. 

Document Quality

   The initial draft of the document was based on the ADSL2 MIB, and 
   thus it has benefited from all the comments, feedback and reviews 
   that were done on that document. The model and objects follow the 
   ITU-T G.997.1 document. No information is available about


   Menahem Dodge is the Document Shepherd. Dan Romascanu is the 
   Responsible Area Director and MIB Doctor. Clay Sikes, David Harrington
   and Bert Wijnen also contributed with expert reviews.
