Abstract:

In order to evaluate the potential impact of facsimile-imagery service upon the current and future Automatic Voice Network AUTOVON and to reduce the time required to perform worldwide AUTOVON Flash Non-Blocking FNB Studies, the capability of the DCEC Voice Network Model has been extended from a single class traffic model to a two class traffic model. As in the AUTOVON system, one class of traffic can preempt the other class of traffic. Both ruthless and friendly preemption disciplines have been incorporated in the model for either originating office or spill control. The DCEC Voice Network model has been used to perform engineering studies of AUTOVON, a worldwide circuit switched telephone system.
