Abstract

Recent advances in digital communications have enabled integration of multiple services in one sys- tem. Motorola's iDEN (Integrated Dispatch Enhanced Network) has combined a dispatch ser- vice, traditionally a realm of two-way radio systems, and a mobile-phone cellular-based unit into an ali- in-one digital communication system. The dispatch services include a single-button private call, group call, call alert, and emergency call. The cellular side (a.k.a. interconnect) provides mobile telephone ser- vice plus capabilities such as call-waiting, facsimile, voice mail, alphanumeric short message service and a more recent service for packetized data transmis- sion.
