     Definitions of Managed Objects for the Optical Interface Type

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 Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) in TCP/IP-
   based internets.  In particular, it defines objects for managing
   Optical Interfaces associated with WavelengthDivision Multiplexing
   systems or characterized by the Optical Transport Network (OTN) in
   accordance with the OTN architecture defined in ITU-T Recommendation
   G.872.

   The MIB module defined in this memo can be used for performance
   monitoring and/or configuration of such optical interface.

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.  Overview

   In this document, the term OTN (Optical Transport Network) system is
   used to describe devices that are compliant with the requirements
   specified in the ITU-T Recommendations G.872 [ITU-T G.872], G.709
   [ITU-T G.709], G.798 [ITU-T G.798], G.874 [ITU-T G.874], and G.874.1
   [ITU-T G.874.1].
