In current SmartZone IntelliRepeater systems, a wide-area call suffers the following due to loss of the data link to the Zone Controller: the call. Instead, local Call Processing will wait for a "link activity time-out" from the previously assigned wide-area channel. Meanwhile, the chan- nel in question detects a transition in progress and implements a "link activity timer" on the digital lihk-essentially staying assigned until no further voice activity is detected on the digital link. Once voice activity has gone away the channel in ques- tion will report this event to local Call Processing and at this point the channel/call will be deassigned.
