In current trunked systems, a remote site must be taken down or have its trunking services reduced (i.e. change t?om wide trunking to site trunking) when the remote site's software is upgraded from a centralized location using Flash technology. The reduction in trunking capability is necessary during the transfer time period because of the magnitude of the data being transferred as well as the processing power required to control the transfer. Thus, during the transfer time period, an undesirable trunking state is encountered.
