Abstract

This document 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 the

Ethernet Wide Area Network (WAN) Interface Sublayer (WIS).

The MIB module defined in this memo is an extension of the

Synchronous Optical Network/Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SONET/SDH)

Interface MIB and is implemented in conjunction with it and with the

Ethernet-like Interface MIB, the 802.3 Medium Attachment Unit MIB,

the Interfaces Group MIB, and the Inverted Stack Table MIB.
