Abstract

This paper describes a method for a set of simulcast channel controllers in a trunked mobile radio communications system to efficiently track mobile subscriber unit (MSU) locations among multiple simulcast RF sites for the purpose of site steering packet data transmissions to individual MSUs. The method is efficient because only the subset of MSUs that are currently using or preparing to use a packet data channel (PDCH) are tracked from among the entire set of MSUs using a simulcast subsystem.
