MULTIMEDIA FORUM TO SUMMARISE WORK OF STANDARDS GROUPS AND DEFINE A MANANAGEMENT INFORMATION BASE

By CBR Staff Writer

The Santa Clara, California-based Multimedia Communications Forum has formed a workgroup to define a Management Information Base for networked multimedia communications. The workgroup’s mission is to define a uniform set of management information service attributes to support speech, video and data communications transport over a variety of networks including Fibre Distributed Data Interface, Asynchronous Transfer Mode, IsoEthernet and ISDN. Companies participating in the Forum’s Information Base workgroup include IBM Corp, AT&T Co, L M Ericsson Telefon AB, Fore Systems Inc, Luxcom Inc and Stevens Institute of Technology. One of the workgroup’s initial focuses will be to gather and summarise the work of existing standards groups including the Internet Engineering Task Force, IEEE 802.9, Desktop Management Task Force, Network Management Forum, Interactive Multimedia Association and the ATM Forum. The specification of an initial Management Information Base for multimedia is planned to be available in draft form in first quarter 1994. Early products could incorporate these Management Information Base elements for demonstration vehicles by mid-1994.
