Abstract:

A faithful GPSS model of the CONUS AUTOVON network is compared to the actual processing of long-distance calls by the network. It includes all 70 switches, about 60 multiple-homed PBXs, the actual routing instructions, 5 levels of priority, and preemption. By a series of runs, a method is tested for a the improvement of the routing instructions within the home grid of a multiple-homed PBX, b the study of how a heavy background load of routine traffic affects a surge of priority calls, and c the study of how the elimination of a block of 12 switches in the center of the network affects coast-to-coast traffic.
