This mib is used to configure channelized operating modes
for interfaces that can operate in either channelized
or concatenated mode. For now, this is used to support
the configuration of the Channelized OC12 netmod. In
that netmod, each port can operate as an STS12c atm
cell source, or it can be configured to operate as
4 STS3c streams channelized over an STS12 sonet path,
or it can operate as 12xDS3 streams carried in STS3
paths, which in turn, are multiplexed into an STS12
This mib exports a single table which contains an
row for each channelizable port in the switch.
Each row has 1 modifiable column to set the operating
mode of the port. Note that changing a port's operating
mode may make dramatic modifications to this and other
tables as switching the mode of an interface may create or
destory other interfaces.
This value indicates the current operating mode
of the specified interface. Note that not all
modes may be chosen for a particular interface.
Also note that even though values are given in
the Sonet hierarchy, these values can also be use
to set the corresponding SDH hierarchy value if
the underlying port is operating in SDH mode.
