                for the Ethernet WAN Interface Sublayer

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

Abstract

   This document 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 the
   Ethernet Wide Area Network (WAN) Interface Sublayer (WIS).

   The MIB module defined in this memo is an extension of the
   Synchronous Optical Network/Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SONET/SDH)
   Interface MIB and is implemented in conjunction with it and with the
   Ethernet-like Interface MIB, the 802.3 Medium Attachment Unit MIB,
   the Interfaces Group MIB, and the Inverted Stack Table MIB.

   For a detailed overview of the documents that describe the current
   Internet-Standard Management Framework, please refer to section 7 of
   RFC 3410 [RFC3410].

   Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, termed
   the Management Information Base or MIB.  MIB objects are generally
   accessed through the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).
