The tables defined by this MIB module contain a collection
of managed objects that are general in nature and apply to
different types of modems. The structure of this module
resembles the ADSL-LINE-MIB, CISCO-SDSL-LINE-MIB,
ADSL-DMT-LINE-MIB, CISCO-ADSL-DMT-LINE-MIB, etc.
Observe that the tables in this module do not necessarily
extend the tables defined by the these mibs. Currently,
only the table that contains the configuration information
extends the profile tables defined by the above modules.
Mib objects must fulfill the following criteria to be
contained in this mib module:
1) The ADSL-LINE-MIB or the modem specific mibs such as
CISCO-SDSL-LINE-MIB, CISCO-ADSL-DMT-LINE-MIB, etc.
does not already contain a managed object
representing the same information.
2) The mibs object must NOT be technology dependent, they
must apply to various types of DSL modems,
e.g. IDSL, SDSL, ADSL, etc.
