  Control and Provisioning of Wireless Access Points (CAPWAP) Protocol
                      Binding MIB for IEEE 802.11

Abstract

   This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB)
   for use with network management protocols.  In particular, it
   describes managed objects for modeling the Control And Provisioning
   of Wireless Access Points (CAPWAP) protocol for IEEE 802.11 wireless
   binding.  This MIB module is presented as a basis for future work on
   the management of the CAPWAP protocol using the Simple Network
   Management Protocol (SNMP).
