Description of Working Group:
The IETF IPCDN Working Group develops and standardizes MIBs
for IP-capable data-over-cable systems, for example cable
modems, multimedia terminal adapters and associated cable-data
equipment in a cable headend. These MIBs cover not only cable
data interfaces, but also management of cable-data equipment
and systems.

The WG mailing list may be used for discussion of Internet-related
issues in data-over-cable equipment and systems. In the event of a
particular new Internet technology issue arising in the cable-data
context, the WG will identify whether that is best handled within
the IETF or is best handled by another standards body. In the event
that new IETF MIB work, the WG chairs can discuss additional WG
work items with the AD. Such additions will have to go through
normal re-charter process. If non-MIB work gets identified, such
items are not normal work items for this IPCDN-MIB WG and must
go through normal IETF new WG chartering process.

Standardization of MIBs for DOCSIS, PacketCable and CableHome systems
are explicitly within the scope of the IPCDN Working Group.

The IPCDN WG will also keep informed on what other groups in the
industry are doing as it relates to the efforts of this working

The WG will align its specifications with IPv6 and SNMP STD.
Goals and Milestones:
Done  Post final I-D on Baseline Privacy MIB; Last call
Done  Post I-Ds revising RF and CM MIBs to support DOCSIS1.1 and for compliance with SNMPv3 and IPv6
Done  Submit Baseline Privacy MIB to IESG for publication as a Standards Track RFC
Feb 00  Submit updated RF and CM MIBs to IESG with implementation statement for advancement to Draft Standard
Jun 00  Revaluate charter and milestones.

    Current Meeting Report

    Vienna, Austria

    --- WG Meeting Summary
    --- ------------------
    Fifteen attendees of the IP over Cable Data Networks WG met at the Vienna 
    IETF on July 16, 2003. The WG discussed the status of its updated work 
    items, that is the 11 Internet-Draft updates released since the last 
    meeting: two drafts for DOCSIS MIBs, three drafts for 
    PacketCable/IPCablecom, and six drafts for CableHome. We also 
    discussed some considerations on the DOCSIS IGMP MIB ID. Total meeting time 
    was about one hour.
    Meeting materials will be provided as part of the IETF proceedings and are 
    also posted at 
    - Summary of decisions made
      (e.g., document accepted as WG item,
        documents ready for IETF LC, etc.)
      o draft-ietf-ipcdn-bpiplus-mib-10.txt
        pending resolution of 2 open issues (see action items below), the bpi+ ID 
    is ready for WGLC. Expected ID update by end of August/early 
    September'03 and launch of WGLC shortly after.
        draft is ready for a new WGLC (given the latest changes). There was no 
    objections from the WG.
      o expired draft-ietf-ipcdn-igmp-mib-04.txt
        Considerations & request for input were brought up by WG chair during 
    the meeting: the proposal is to simply withdraw & stop the ipcdn IGMP mib. 
    This proposal is being considered by the wg chairs and motivated by:
          a) no activity on the draft & no volunteer to solve MIB doctor 
    comments since August 14, 2002;
          b) inability to find operators interested in using this MIB 
    mechanism to configure & monitor IGMP using a specific ipcdn IGMP MIB even 
    though there is product support for some vendors;
          c) ipcdn Atlanta rule: no updates in more than 2 IETF meetings.
        A decision will be made by the chairs by 8/14/03 based on 
    solicited input.
      o draft-ietf-ipcdn-pktc-mtamib-01.txt
        awaiting end of WGLC that is 7/18/03.
        awaiting end of WGLC that is 7/18/03.
        list of oustanding issues is available on ipcdn and was sent to the 
    list; resolution of those issues is the next step; there was no 
    comments on the list of issues during the IETF 57 meeting; see AI6.
        draft needs to be reviewed, especially alignment with RFC2669 & 
    Syslog MIB ID. See AI7 below.
        CableHome IDs need to be reviewed, have been submitted for ipcdn 
    consideration & feedback since October 2002. Call for Volunteers.
