INTERCONNECT CALL PRIORITY Currently, the only priority resource assignment capability available is for mobile initiated intercon- nect calls where the individual id of the subscriber has a priority capability associated with it. However, there is no priority resource assignment method to provide for land initiated interconnect calls or for varying priority levels within the interconnect feature. The shared service algorithm (U.S. Patent 4,612,415) , which manages intercon- nect traffic, also does not make any accommodation for priority resource assignment for individual interconnect calls.
