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 basic set of managed objects for Simple
   Network Management Protocol (SNMP)-based management of PacketCable-
   and IPCablecom-compliant Multimedia Terminal Adapter devices.

1.  The Internet-Standard Management Framework

   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).
   Objects in the MIB are defined using the mechanisms defined in the
   Structure of Management Information (SMI).  This memo specifies a MIB
   module that is compliant to the SMIv2, which is described in STD 58,
   RFC 2578 [RFC2578], STD 58, RFC 2579 [RFC2579] and STD 58, RFC 2580
   [RFC2580].

2.  Terminology

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "NOT RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and
   "OPTIONAL", when used in the guidelines in this memo, are to be
   interpreted as described in RFC 2119 [RFC2119].

   The terms "MIB module" and "information module" are used
   interchangeably in this memo.  As used here, both terms refer to any
   of the three types of information modules defined in Section 3 of RFC
   2578 [RFC2578].

   Some of the terms used in this memo are defined below.  Some
   additional terms are also defined in the PacketCable MTA Device
   Provisioning Specification [PKT-SP-PROV] and the PacketCable Security
   Specification [PKT-SP-SEC].

   DOCSIS
   The CableLabs(R) Certified(TM) Cable Modem project, also known as
   DOCSIS(R) (Data over Cable Service Interface Specification), defines
   interface requirements for cable modems involved in high-speed data
   distribution over cable television system networks.  DOCSIS also
   refers to the ITU-T J.112 recommendation, Annex B, for cable modem
   systems [ITU-T-J112].

   Cable Modem
   A Cable Modem (CM) acts as a data transport agent used to transfer
   call management and voice data packets over a DOCSIS-compliant cable
   system.
