1. Abstract

This document defines a standard SNMP MIB for ADSL lines based on the

ADSL Forum standard data model [9]. The ADSL standard describes

ATU-C and ATU-R as two sides of the ADSL line. This MIB covers both

ATU-C and ATU-R agent's perspectives. Each instance defined in the

MIB represents a single ADSL line.

The SNMP Management Framework presently consists of five major

components:

o An overall architecture, described in RFC 2571 [13].

Management Information (SMI) is called SMIv1 and described in STD

16, RFC 1155 [14], STD 16, RFC 1212 [15] and RFC 1215 [16]. The

second version, called SMIv2, is described in STD 58, RFC 2578

[1], STD 58, RFC 2579 [2] and STD 58, RFC 2580 [17].

o Message protocols for transferring management information. The

first version of t...
