This MIB module describes all variations of the symmetric
DSL line interfaces. The structure of this module resembles
and maintains consistency with the ADSL-LINE-MIB,
ADSL-DMT-LINE-MIB, CISCO-ADSL-DMT-LINE-MIB, and
CISCO-ADSL-CAP-LINE-MIB. Observe that the tables in this
module do not necessarily extend the tables defined by the
these mibs. Currently, only those tables that contain
configuration information extend the profile tables defined
by the above modules. This allows the management
client to define DSL configuration profiles that apply across
all DSL modems, independent of the technology being utilized by
*** DEFINITIONS ***
Attenuation is a decrease in the strength of a signal
over the length of a cable.
A coding violation occurs when the incoming signal exhibits
a CRC anomaly.
The flow of data in the direction from the ATU-C to ATU-R.
A second with one or more coding violations or one or more
incoming defects (e.g., LOS or LOSQ).
The total data rate supported by a line. Observe that the
payload rate is equal the line rate for the earliest
implementations of SDSL. However, the payload rate maybe
less than the line rate for future implementations.
LOSS OF SYNC DEFECT
A Loss of Sync Defect is defined as 3 consecutive received
frames which contain one or more errors in the framing
bits. A Loss of Sync Defect shall be cleared when at least
2 consecutive received frames contain no errors in the
LOSS OF SYNC FAILURE
A LOSW Failure is defined as at least 2 consecutive
seconds of LOSW Defect. The LOSW Failure should be
cleared when the LOSW defect is absent for 20 seconds or
less. (i.e. clear within 20 seconds ).
MARGIN (also referred to as 'SNR margin')
The difference between the SNR of the received signal and
the SNR required to provide a BER of 10E-7.
SEVERELY ERRORED SECOND
A one second interval during which or more LOSW or CV defects
A Unavailable Second is defined as a one second interval
during which LOSW Failure ( at least 2 seconds of LOSW
The flow of data in the direction from the ATU-R to ATU-C.
