Modem Management (modemmgt)

Status: Concluded August, 1994


  • Mark Lewis

Description of Working Group:

The Modem Management Working Group is chartered to define a MIB module for dial-up modems and similar dial-up devices. This MIB module will provide a set of objects that are the minimum necessary to provide the ability to monitor and control those devices, and will be consistent with the SNMP framework and existing SNMP standards.

The working group will consider existing specifications including the RS-232--like, Character, PPP and other related MIB modules. It will consider enterprise-specific MIB modules which support modem-like devices. The working group will also consider the TSB Study Group 14's work on an OSI CMIS/CMIP object definition for V series DCEs entitled "Managed Object Template for V-Series DCEs."
