Part of the Applications of Communications Theory book series (ACTH)


This chapter familiarizes the reader with the basic design concepts and architecture of software in digital switching systems. It describes the criteria the designer must consider in developing software and details the structure and operation of a basic design to provide plain-old-telephone service, a few custom calling features, and central office maintenance.
