                     Definitions of Managed Objects
                    for the SONET/SDH Interface Type

Status of this Memo

   This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for the
   Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions for
   improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the "Internet
   Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the standardization state
   and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this memo is unlimited.

Abstract

   This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB)
   for use with network management protocols in TCP/IP-based internets.
   In particular, it defines objects for managing Synchronous Optical
   Network/Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SONET/SDH) objects.  This
   document is a companion document with Definitions of Managed Objects
   for the DS1/E1 and DS3/E3 Interface Types, RFC1406 [14] and RFC1407
   [13].

   This memo specifies a MIB module in a manner that is both compliant
   to the SNMPv2 SMI, and semantically identical to the peer SNMPv1
   definitions.

1.  The SNMPv2 Network Management Framework

   The SNMPv2 Network Management Framework consists of four major
   components.  They are:

      RFC 1442 [1] which defines the SMI, the mechanisms used for
      describing and naming objects for the purpose of management.

      STD 17, RFC 1213 [6] defines MIB-II, the core set of managed
      objects for the Internet suite of protocols. Reference [12]
      defines the evolution of the Interfaces Group of MIB II in terms
      of extensions and precise applications of the objects.

      RFC 1445 [4] which defines the administrative and other
      architectural aspects of the framework.
