1.  Introduction

   The softwire mesh framework [RFC5565] is a tunneling mechanism that
   enables connectivity between islands of IPv4 networks across a single
   IPv6 backbone and vice versa.  In a softwire mesh, extended
   Multiprotocol BGP (MP-BGP) is used to set up tunnels and advertise
   prefixes among Address Family Border Routers (AFBRs).

   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 objects for managing a softwire mesh
   [RFC5565].

2.  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
