This MIB module defines objects to manage Converged Data Link
CDL provides OAM&P (Operation, Administration, Maintenance and
Provisioning) in Ethernet packet-based optical networks without
a SONET/SDH layer.
The CDL functionality can be divided into the following
The CDL frame carries defect indication bits and provides
signalling mechanism support for automatic protection
The message channel is used to carry control (e.g. routing,
signalling) and management traffic.
Packet-by-packet multiplexing of multiple data flows:
CDL uses one or two octets to identify the elementary
packet stream that this packet belongs to. This allows
more than one elementary packet stream to share the
bandwidth on a CDL enabled interface.
This MIB defines objects to manage Defect Indications and the
Packet-by-packet Multiplexing feature.
The CDL Message channel is modeled as a separate interface and
should be controlled using the IF-MIB and other MIBs for
managing IP. This MIB does not provide a mechanism to manage
the CDL message channel.
APS configuration and monitoring can be done using the
CISCO-APS-MIB and CISCO-APS-EXT-MIB.
