Abstract

There are many situations where customers uti- lize both trunked radios and digital pagers. Currently, to activate a pager from a trunked radio, the operator ofthe trunked radio must either utilize a land based telephone or must place a trunked telephone inter- connect call. This is because the typical interface to activate a digital pager is through a telephone. For a trunked radio user, using a land based telephone may not be possible, practical or convenient and using a trunked telephone interconnect call is wasteful of system resources. Further if a telephone intercon- nect call is used it requires that the radio be equipped for telephone access.

ORIGINATING A PAGE FROM A TRUNKED RADIO

BACKGROUND

SOLUTION

  There are many situations where customers uti- lize both trunked radios and digital pagers. Currently, to activate a pager from a trunked radio, the operator ofthe trunked radio must either utilize a land based telephone or must place a trunked telephone inter- connect call. This is because the typical interface to activate a digital pager is through a telephone. For a trunked radio user, using a land based telephone may not be possible, practical or convenient and using a trunked telephone interconnect call is wasteful of system resources. Further if a telephone intercon- nect call is used it requires that the radio be equipped for telephone access.

  This invention utilizes the trunking system con- trol channel to transmit activation requests for dig- ital pagers. The entire page request including a pager identifier and optional alpha-numeric or digital data message is transmitted on the trunking system. A fixed end computer processes and routes the request and data to the appropriate pager service where it is then sent to the pager. The fixed end computer may utilize existing telephone interfaces to the paging systems or direct connections. This invention pro- vides digital pager access for bunked radio users when traditional means may not be available, practical or cost effective.
