Abstract

Analog non-signaling calls on conventional radio systems have no data associated with them. When a call of this type comes in, the system has no way of knowing from which radio the call came from.

ANALOG CALL STEERING ON DIGITAL CHANNELS

by Keith Cochran and Javier Trevino

  Analog non-signaling calls on conventional radio systems have no data associated with them. When a call of this type comes in, the system has no way of knowing from which radio the call came from.

  Digital calls however, use digital data along with the digital encoded audio to transmit additional information to the console operator position such as caller identification and talkgroup identification. When digitally-controlled channels are set up to listen to analog calls, all operator positions must listen to all analog calls which come in. There is no way of segregating analog calls between operator positions.

  This invention proposes adding caller identifi- cation and talkgroup identification to all analog calls reaching a console operator position to allow steering calls to only certain operators.

With this invention, analog calls are assigned

a pseudo-digital individual identification number and talkgroup identification number as the calls come in. (See Figure 1) All analog calls arriving at a given operator position are assigned the same talkgroup and individual identification number. However, each operator position can be pro- grammed witha different pseudo-digital individual identification or talkgroup identification number. In addition, each operator position can be programmed to mute or unmute for the pseudo-digital talkgroup identification numbe...
