Abstract

In today's system, a channel's health is deter- mined by testing the channel periodically while it is idle and at the beginning and end of each call. These tests help determine if the channel is usable by the system preferably before a call is assigned. When a failure is detected, the channel is taken out of service by the system so it is not used for calls, This method works well for channels that have "hard" failures. These are hardware failures that permanently remove a channel from service.
