Abstract

See full text

A method is provided in one example and includes receiving a first channel release notification from a communication network at a trunked radio network gateway connecting one or more trunked radio networks to the communication network. The method also includes determining whether the first channel release notification was generated in response to an initial seizure or a release of a channel in a trunked radio network of the gateway. The method further includes suppressing transmission of a further channel release notification based on data included in the first channel release notification that indicates an origin of the channel seizure or the release causing the first channel release notification to be generated. In more specific embodiments, the data includes parameter values indicating an originating source for the seizure or the release and a responding source generating the channel release notification.
