1. Introduction

This memo describes Textual Conventions and OBJECT-IDENTITIES used

for managing ATM-based interfaces, devices, networks and services.

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
