(54)SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR COORDINATING RESOURCES


(57) Coordination of a plurality of resources is disclosed to respond to a local service target. A local measurement is taken by a first resource and, if the first resource cannot satisfy the local service target, short range recruitment of one or more additional resources is performed by providing a first signal to a cluster of resources associated with the first resource. If the short range recruitment does not satisfy the local service target, a second signal is provided to a network resource controller for long range recruitment of one or more resources to satisfy the local service target.
