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 interfaces
   that conform to the Ethernet Passive Optical Networks (EPON) standard
   as defined in the IEEE Std 802.3ah-2004, which are extended
   capabilities to the Ethernet like interfaces.

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.  Overview

   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 interfaces
   that conform to the Ethernet Passive Optical Networks (EPON) standard
   as defined in [802.3ah], which are extended capabilities to the
   Ethernet like interfaces.  The document contains a list of management
   objects based on the attributes defined in the relevant parts of
   [802.3ah] Annex 30A, referring to EPON.
