The iDEN wireless network consists of multiple Network elements, managed by the Operations and Maintenance Center-Radio (OMC-R). The Network Elements report to the OMC-R changes in their states, as well as failure conditions through unsolicited events. The events are fed into a Correlation Services application, which correlates the events, identifies the statuses of the Network Elements and updates the Management Information System (MIS) with the new statuses. Since the Network Elements are interconnected and depend on each other for proper functioning, some failures on the network can result in a very high number of events being generated by the different Network Elements, all of them sent to the OMC-R. These event bursts result in a lot of new statuses, which the Correlation Services application tries to update in the Management Information System (MIS). A lot of those status updates are intermediate-the Network Element can go through several states EvenD' miva, lab m ewnw?ac r--- _--.
