Technical Summary

  This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB)
  for use with network management protocols in the Internet community.
  The document proposes an extension to the Ethernet-like Interfaces
  MIB with a set of objects for managing a Power Source Equipment (PSE). 

Working Group Summary
 
  There is Working Group Consensus to publish the above document as a
  Proposed Standard.
 
Protocol Quality
 
  This document has been reviewed for the IESG by Bert Wijnen and
  Mike Heard.
