Abstract

   This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB)
   for use with network management protocols in TCP/IP-based internets.
   In particular, it defines objects for managing Synchronous Optical
   Network/Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SONET/SDH) interfaces.  This
   document is a companion to the documents that define Managed Objects
   for the DS1/E1/DS2/E2 and DS3/E3 Interface Types.

   This memo replaces RFC 2558.  Changes relative to RFC 2558 are
   summarized in the MIB module's REVISION clause.
