Title: Method and apparatus for performing selection and distribution in a communication system

Abstract: A communication system (100) that includes base stations (103-109) comprising selection circuitry (207) is provided herein. The determination of a call anchoring base station (base station performing Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) frame selection) is made based on the base station with a lowest mean work load. During communication with a remote unit (113), frames received by non-call anchoring base stations (105, 107) are backhauled to a switch (101). The switch (101) then sidehauls the frames to the call anchoring base station (103), where selection and call processing functions for the particular call takes place.
