Currently, Intellirepeater (IR) stations that are released with an SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) agent, are only capable of reporting information in one mode of operation (referred to as Mode A in this context). Likewise, configuration management is only supported in Mode A. However, an IR station may exist in any one of three modes (referenced as Mode A, Mode B and Mode C respectively). If, at any time, the cur- rent state of the IR station is in either Mode B or Mode C, since no SNMP functionality exists, no faults which occur will be reported. Therefore, since there is no way to report information via SNTHP through either Mode B or Mode C, the cur- rent state of the IR station will be referred to as "unknown" as opposed to the "true" current state.
