Disabling Radios
Temporary Subscription Disable

Permanent Subscription Disable

Permanent disabling is intended to


protect a network from attack from
a compromised or faulty MS.

Can be used when the MS is known


to have been compromised, or has
been suspected of compromise for
a long time.

One way function, there is no


equivalent enable.

The MS would need to be


recovered and reprogrammed
before it could be used again.

Dimetra IP allows the Network


Manager to temporarily disable
(stun) a MS, by sending a message
over the air interface.
While stunned, the MS will be
unable to make or receive calls.
Although it will appear to be turned
off to the user, it will continue to
register with the system, so that the
Network Manager can track it.
The radio can be re enable by
sending the command Temporary
Subscription Enable

Dynamic Group Number


Assignment (DGNA) (1)

This feature allows an RCM user to add and remove Talkgroups from
the talkgroup list of a subscriber

A Dynamic Regrouping command can also be used to re-name an


existing talkgroup, and to assign a new Class of Usage

A Dynamic Regrouping command can affect up to 100 Mobile Stations.


Each Mobile Station involved in the command sends an
acknowledgement to the RCM application. A Dynamic Regrouping
command that has been successfully completed can be reversed by use
of the Revert action.
