1.  Introduction

   This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB)
   for use with network management protocols in the Internet community.
   In particular, it describes managed objects used for managing dial-up
   modems and similar dial-up devices.  This MIB module provides a set
   of objects that are the minimum necessary to provide the ability to
   monitor and control those devices, and is consistent with the SNMP
   framework and existing SNMP standards.

2.  The SNMPv2 Network Management Framework

   The SNMPv2 Network Management Framework consists of four major
   components.  They are:

      o RFC 1442 which defines the SMI, the mechanisms used for
        describing and naming objects for the purpose of management.

      o STD 17, RFC 1213 defines MIB-II, the core set of managed objects
        for the Internet suite of protocols.

      o RFC 1445 which defines the administrative and other
        architectural aspects of the framework.

      o RFC 1448 which defines the protocol used for network access to
        managed objects.

   The Framework permits new objects to be defined for the purpose of
   experimentation and evaluation.

2.1.  Object Definitions

   Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, termed
   the Management Information Base or MIB.  Objects in the MIB are
   defined using the subset of Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1)
   defined in the SMI.  In particular, each object object type is named
   by an OBJECT IDENTIFIER, an administratively assigned name.  The
   object type together with an object instance serves to uniquely
   identify a specific instantiation of the object.  For human
   convenience, we often use a textual string, termed the descriptor, to
   refer to the object type.

            This code means the failure reason is unknown or
            there has been no previous call.

               other:
            This code used when no other code is applicable.
            Additional vendor information may be available
            elsewhere.

               managementCommand:

            A management command terminated the call.  These
            commands include escaping to command mode, initiating
            dialing, restoring lines, and disconnecting.

               inactivityTimeout:
            The call was terminated because it was inactive for
            at the minimum duration specified.

               mnpIncompatibility:
            The modems are unable to resolve MNP protocol
            differences.

               protocolError:
            An error occured in one of protocol in use.  Further
            information is required to determine in which
            protocol the error occurred, and the exact nature of
            the error.

               powerLoss:
            The modem lost power and disconnected the call.

               equipmentFailure:
            The modem equipment failed.

               dtrDrop:
            DTR has been turned off while the modem is to
            disconnect on DTR drop. (Ref: V.58 cct108TurnedOff)

               noDialTone:
            If the modem is to monitor for call progress tones,
            but the modem has failed to detect dial tone while
            attempting to dial a number.

               lineBusy:
            Busy signal is detected while busy signal detection
            is enabled, or while the 'W' or '@' dial modifier is
            used. (Ref: V.58 engagedTone)

               noAnswer:
            The call was not answered.

               voiceDetected:
            A voice was detected on the call.

               carrierLost:
            Indicates that the modem has disconnected due to
            detection of loss of carrier.  In TIA-602, the S10
            register determines the time that loss of carrier

            must be detected before the modem disconnects.

               trainingFailed:
            Indicates that the modems did not successfully train
            and reach data mode on the previous connection.

               faxDetected:
            A fax was detected on the call."
