User defined call forwarding enables incoming calls to be forwarded on the request of the calling party.
In a public safety communication system, where the reliability of contact between users is a must, is it important that users are being redirected if it not possible to obtain a connection for all call types. Group calls are typically several users in a call whereas phone and private calls only are between two parties.
Problem To Be Solved
1) When user "A" makes a private call to
user "B" and user is busy or doesn’t answer. User "A" will
get a reject/no answer back.
2) When user "A" makes a phone call to user "B" and user is busy or doesn’t answer. User “A” will either get a reject/no answer back or go to an answering machine.
This can in some cases be acceptable but in most cases it is important for user "A" to get into contact with a specific user or a user within user "A" group without making a group call.
Proposed Solution to the Problem(s)

My idea is to build a list of private call numbers / phone call numbers in the subscriber, so that when user "A" gets a “reject” or no “answer back” when making either a private call or phone call to user "B", the User "A" subscriber will automatically try to make a new attempt to user "B" maybe up to 3 times with a certain time interval.
