Different approaches to conceptual modeling of overall telecommunication systems with QoS guarantees are discussed. Generalized Nets (GNs) are used as an alternative to the already existing conceptual models based on the Service Networks Theory. Two GN representations of a part of the Switching stage are proposed and their advantages and disadvantages are discussed.
