Abstract

The services provided by iDEN are dramatically growing. The number of users in single fleet is becoming more and more. And the usage of radios is becoming more and more active. Now for group structure like DAP, the single user spends with radioactivity more than two hours per day, while 20 minutes per day two years ago. This estimation doesn't include the subscriber in-mail service or short message services yet, which is supposed to increase the usage about 100 to 200 percent per user.

ALERT ACKNOWLEDGEMENT ENABLE NEXT CALL OUT

INTRODUCTION

  The services provided by iDEN are dramatically growing. The number of users in single fleet is becoming more and more. And the usage of radios is becoming more and more active. Now for group structure like DAP, the single user spends with radioactivity more than two hours per day, while 20 minutes per day two years ago. This estimation doesn't include the subscriber in-mail service or short message services yet, which is supposed to increase the usage about 100 to 200 percent per user.

  This activity increases the possibility that single user will not immediately respond for request from other members of his group. The reason is that the person may be in some other activity e.g. meeting or other type of services, e.g. reading his mail or some other reasons. This situation will become more seri- ous when inter-fleet communication or inter-DAP communication is implemented.

OBJECTIVE

  To prevent the incoming problem/conflict situa- tion we introduced here, we suggest Alert/A&now- ledgement for iDEN radio.

PROCEDURE

  When the expected receiver is busy for any rea- son, he could not respond for call alert, the sender would like to know that the receiver has got the message, and he wants to know if the alert has reached the target radio and he is waiting for a response.

The new radio features we suggest here are sup- posed to keep queue in the radio with the sender's

radio ID and the time when he sent it. When the receiver tries to use private call features or alert fea- ture of the radio, he has:to first respond (acknowl- edge) to all the radios which had tried to connect with him during the time when he was busy. To make it easier for the end user, he will have three options for an acknowledgement, and he can do it by using the single hit button. The first type of knowledge is it will send a message to the sender with preset descriptions the "I got your pager/alert, I'm st...
