Abstract

   This memo describes Textual Conventions and OBJECT-IDENTITIES used
   for managing ATM-based interfaces, devices, networks and services.

1.  Introduction

   This memo describes Textual Conventions and OBJECT-IDENTITIES used
   for managing ATM-based interfaces, devices, networks and services.

Noto, et. al.               Standards Track                     [Page 1]
RFC 2514             ATM TCs and OBJECT-IDENTITIES         February 1999

   When designing a MIB module, it is often useful to define new types
   similar to those defined in the SMI.  In comparison to a type defined
   in the SMI, each of these new types has a different name, a similar
   syntax, but a more precise semantics.  These newly defined types are
   termed textual conventions, and are used for the convenience of
   humans reading the MIB module.  This is done through Textual
   Conventions as defined in RFC1903 [1].  It is the purpose of this
   document to define the set of textual conventions available to ATM
   MIB modules.

   When designing MIB modules, it is also often useful to register
   further properties with object identifier assignments so that they
   can be further used by other MIB modules.  This is done through the
   OBJECT-IDENTITY macro defined in RFC1902 [2].  This document defines
   OBJECT-IDENTITIES available to ATM MIB modules.

   Note that for organizational purposes OBJECT IDENTITIES previously
   defined in RFC1695 have been moved to this specification and no
   longer appear in the revision of RFC1695 [3]. However, the original
   OBJECT IDENTIFIERs have been preserved.

   For an introduction to the concepts of ATM connections, see [3].
