Abstract

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.
