A typical telecommunications system today is composed of multiple distributed boxes (network elements), which communicate with each other to realize the intended functionality of the system. Dimetra-Sa is such a system, comprised of multiple boxes which form two distinct and bifurcated sub-systems: Dispatch and Telephony subsystems. The former provides dispatch and the latter provides telephony services. Although distinct, the boxes in both sub-systems must interact to a certain degree to provide needed services. One such interaction is required during the initial phase of a land-to-mobile telephony call.
