The intent of this chapter is to familiarize the reader with the basic design concepts and architecture of software for stored program control in central offices. It describes the criteria the designer must consider in developing central office software, and then details the structure and operation of a basic design to provide plain-old-telephone service, a few custom calling features, and central office maintenance.
