RFC 2514 ATM TCs and OBJECT-IDENTITIES February 1999

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 longer appear in the revision of RFC1695 [3]. However, the original OBJECT IDENTIFIERs have been preserved.

For an introduction to the concepts of ATM connections, see [3].
