Time-Division Networks

  • Matthew F. Slana
Part of the Applications of Communications Theory book series (ACTH)


Previous chapters have dealt with general topics related to switching, such as circuit switching networks, traffic theory, and control, which are independent of whether the switch is analog or digital. As the topics were discussed, the areas where these technologies were unique to digital switching were highlighted.
