Abstract

With recent, remarkable development of optical fiber technology optical fibers are replacing conventional coaxial cables and microwave systems in the toll telephone network. This paper optimizes a telecommunication network configuration which uses large-capacity transmission systems such as optical fibers. In a hypothetical Japanese toll telephone network, the required numbers of circuits and systems are calculated and compared for five types of network models (i. e. , mesh, lattice, ring, ring-mesh composite and star-mesh composite types).
