Abstract

There is a market segment which require systems composed of a relatively small numbers of sites and which can be delivered a very low cost per communication resource. This need includes the requirement for significantly lower cost solutions to support the automatic roaming of subscribers as they move between sites. Current methods to addressing roaming, as implemented in Cellular and Private Mobile Radio, PMR, systems, SmartZone for example, are too complex and too costly to effectively address the grade of service needed by these smaller private system owners. The computers required to implement these roaming techniques for these larger systems are typically more expensive then the total market value of an entire radio system by these customers.
