The architecture of this invention came about as a means to provide a larger alias database for our custom- ers than is currently supported. Aliases are alphanumeric identifiers used to identify a specific radio ID. Each radio ID can map to one and only one alias. The alias database for the system, provided by this invention, resides on a centralized remote node. Because of the centralized loca- tion of the database we can also provide a 'shi change' of the database with zero setup time. A shift change of the database would occur with a workshift change whereby radios are taken in or out of service or exchanged. The shit? change occurs with manual action and allows for the changing of the alias database to reflect the workshi changes.
