Abstract

The goal of a service provider is to maximize air time usage, increasing revenues. Failed calls negatively affect air time usage; one important example in the iDEN system is a private call which can not be completed due to unavailability of the target subscriber. This article describes a method to complete these calls to a Voice Mail System (VMS). This will increase revenue to the service provider by completing previously failed calls, as well as creating new revenue when messages are retrieved. This method is applicable to all systems offering dispatch services; the iDEN system is used as a frame of reference.
