In current trunked systems that utilize a LAN network to allow communication between stations, a remote site must be taken off the air when the remote site's sofiware is upgraded using current meth- ods or Flash technology. The reduction in commu- nication capability is necessary because ofthe poten- tial for messaging incompatibilities between the current version of sofiware and the upgrade version of sofiware. This results in a significant time period in which the site can not provide users with trunked communication capabilities.
