In a wide area system with a centralized audio switch (refer to figure l), the creation of channels consists of mapping base stations to audio slots. Currently, this map- ping is done manually by a user. The. user must know how many base stations and audio slots are present and determine how they should be mapped to one another. This procedure must be repeated each time a new sys- tem is installed. Errors can be introduced ifthey are not mapped correctly and as a result, the audio could be mis-routed or lost. Elimination of errors encountered during manual configuration (mapping) of base stations to audio slots can be accomplished by automating the. process.
