Charter (as of 2010-03-09)

The working group will define:

1. A set of managed objects to handle the bonding of xDSL lines
according to the ITU-T Recommendations G.998.1 (ATM), G.998.2 (Ethernet)
and G.998.3 (TDIM). A common MIB module will be developed to handle the
common objects and three specific MIB modules will be developed to
handle the three separate layer-2 technologies. Use will be made of the
ifStack and ifInvStack Tables defined in RFC 2863 and RFC 2864
respectively. Use will also be made of the ifCapStack and ifInvCapStack
tables as defined in RFC 5066. The Broadband forum TR-159 will be used
in the definition of these MIBs.

2. The working group will develop a set of managed objects as an
optional extension to RFC 5650 that shall provide an alternative
approach, known as the "Vector of Profiles", for the configuration of
DSL lines. The Vector of Profiles MIB will be based on the Broadband
Forum TR-165 document. The ITU-T G.997.1 will also be considered in the
definition of this extension.

The MIB modules defined by this group will be generated using SMIv2,
will be consistent with the SNMP management framework, and will
describe the relationship of the objects defined to existing MIBs such
as those described in other work products of this Working Group, the
interfaces MIB, the Ethernet MIB modules and the AToM MIB.
