In group dispatch systems with message trunking transmission, the duration of the drop-out time can be provisioned as shorter or longer than an optimal value. If it is too short, significant network resources may be wasted for re-establishing the continuation of the same group call as a new call. If it is too long, the original group call is tying up network resources for longer than needed. As a result, the network throughput can be far less than optimal, especially when short group calls dominate.
