              Signaling MIB for PacketCable and IPCablecom
                  Multimedia Terminal Adapters (MTAs)

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
   and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this memo is unlimited.

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.  Introduction

   A multimedia terminal adapter (MTA) is used to deliver broadband
   Internet, data, and/or voice access jointly with telephony service
   to a subscriber's or customer's premises using a cable network
   infrastructure.  An MTA is normally installed at the customer's or
   subscriber's premises, and it is coupled to a multiple system
   operator (MSO) using a hybrid fiber coax (HFC) access network.

   An MTA is provisioned by the MSO for broadband Internet, data, and/or
   voice service.  For more information on MTA provisioning, refer to

Beacham, et al.             Standards Track                     [Page 2]
RFC 5098        PacketCable/IPCablecom NCS Signaling MIB   February 2008

   the PacketCable Provisioning Specification [PKT-SP-PROV] and
   [RFC4682].  MTA devices include one or more endpoints
   (e.g., telephone ports), which receive call signaling information
   to establish ring cadence, and codecs used for providing telephony
   service.  For more information on call signaling, refer to the
   PacketCable Signaling Specification [PKT-SP-MGCP] and [RFC3435].
