1.  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) interfaces.  This
   document is a companion to the documents that define Managed Objects
   for the DS1/E1/DS2/E2 and DS3/E3 Interface Types [24][25].

   Textual Conventions used in this MIB are defined in [6] and [36].

   This memo replaces RFC 1595 [30]. Changes relative to RFC 1595 are
   summarized in the MIB module's REVISION clause.

2.  The SNMP Network Management Framework

   The SNMP Management Framework presently consists of five major
   components:

   0    An overall architecture, described in RFC 2271 [1].

   0    Mechanisms for describing and naming objects and events for the
        purpose of management.  The first version of this Structure of
        Management Information (SMI) is called SMIv1 and described in
        STD 16, RFC 1155 [2], STD 16, RFC 1212 [3] and RFC 1215 [4].
