Abstract:

This report covers the results of a study to develop a hardware architecture which will be the basis for a family of communications processors for applications processors for application in circuit, message, packet and base communications switch configurations. Over 23 switching equipments were investigated from which a functional baseline was defined for use in the subsequent studies for evolving an advanced Communications Processor System CPS architecture. These switches included circuit, message, and packet switching equipments which were felt to be typical of traditional and advanced switching concepts. As an example, the ANTTC-39, AUTODIN, ARPA Network were used as part of the circuit, message and packet switching baselines respectively. Air Force Base Communications studies were used as the baseline in that area. From this baseline, a set of fifteen primitive functions were derived which represent the needed capabilities for any generally applied communications processor CP. This report is organized into eight volumes as follows Volume 1 - Executive Summary Volume 2 - Definition of Problem Volume 3 - Modelling Volume 4 - CCC Architecture Volume 5 - CPS Architecture Volume 6 - Software Generation Volume 7 - Appendices and Volume 8 - CPS Central Processor Specification.
