Description of Working Group

The Bridge MIB Working Group is chartered to define a set of managed objects that instrument devices that conform to the IEEE 802.1 standard for MAC-layer bridges.

This set of objects should be largely compliant with (and even draw from) IEEE 802.1(b), although there is no requirement that any specific object be present or absent.

The MIB object definitions produced will be for use by SNMP and will be consistent with other SNMP objects, standards, and conventions.
