Technical Summary This document defines Management Information Base (MIB) modules for use with network management protocols in TCP/IP based internets. This document describes extensions to the Ethernet-like Interfaces MIB and MAU MIB modules with a set of objects for managing Ethernet in the First Mile Copper (EFMCu) interfaces 10PASS-TS and 2BASE-TL, defined in IEEE Std 802.3ah-2004 (note: IEEE Std 802.3ah-2004 has been integrated into IEEE Std 802.3-2005). In addition a set of objects is defined, describing cross-connect capability of a managed device with multi-layer (stacked) interfaces, extending the stack management objects in the Interfaces Group MIB and the Inverted Stack Table MIB modules. Working Group Summary The process was somewhat time consuming because many of the 802.3 domain experts do not attend the IETF f2f meetings on a regular basis anymore. Nevertheless, the WG chair believes that we have had sufficient participation from IETF and IEEE 802.3 people to request publication of this MIB document as a Proposed Standard. It is also expected for this document to be the last work item before the Working Group conclusion. Protocol Quality Preliminary implementations have been claimed to exist. Since various MIB doctors were active participants/reviewers, no dedicated MIB doctor review was performed. Well known MIB doctors who have reviewed this document include Bert Wijnen, Dan Romascanu, Keith McCloghrie, Mike Heard. In addition, the WGLC was forwarded to IEEE 802.3 and ADSLMIB WG.
