This chapter discusses traffic measurement, forecasting and equipment quantities. The idea of measuring traffic in terms of traffic-flow units was first conceived with the sole objective of ensuring the cost-efficient handling of telephone calls on a circuit-switched network. Other types of telecommunications traffic are now carried on the same circuit-switched network in addition to telephone calls but, since all traffic is in the form of separate successive calls, traffic measurement on the basis of erlang or CCS units remains a valid concept.

Inspec keywords: telephone networks; circuit switching; telecommunication traffic
