Abstract

   This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB)
   for use with network management protocols in the Internet community.
   In particular, it defines a set of managed objects for Simple Network
   Management Protocol (SNMP) based management of the Radio Frequency
   (RF) interfaces for systems compliant with the Data Over Cable
   Service Interface Specifications (DOCSIS).
