Paper Abstract

New high-density Fiber optic trunk carrier systems are drastically lowering the TRANSMISSION/SWITCHING COST RATIO. Reducing the number of switches in an existing toll network may reduce the cost of the network. Overflow growth traffic from an exhausted switch in a toll network can be hauled to a distant location to be switched, which can defer replacement of the exhausted switch, and reduce the cost of the network.
