This paper describes an algorithm for optimizing communication resource usage in a trunked radio sys- tem. It works by moving non-specialiied calls, such as traditional analog dispatch, off of resources that are equipped for specialized functions, such as telephone interconnect or digital voice, while the call is in prog- ress. A method is described herein to maximiie the use of all communication resources through the use of intel- ligent steering and call reassignment, while at the same time maintaining the cost effective partitioning of capa- bilities among the communication resources. This algo- rithm could be incorporated into the processing rou- tines for handling call requests in tnmking systems.
