These connections between the transit exchanges are calledthe hierarchical transit network. Mesh network Star network Ring networkFigure 1. Mesh networksare applicable when there are few large exchanges upper part of the hierarchy, also namedpolygon network , whereas star networks are proper when there are many small exchanges lower part of the hierarchy. The 64 Kbps are obtained from a sampling of the analogue signal at a rate of 8 kHz and anamplitude accuracy of 8 bit.
Two of the 32 channels in a PCM system are used for signallingand control. Local-exchanges or subscriber-exchanges L , to which the subscribers areconnected, are connected to main exchanges T , which again are connected to inter-urbanexchanges I. An inter-urban area thus makes up a star network. The inter-urban exchangesare interconnected in a mesh network.
In the future Danish network there will only be two levels, as T and I will be merged. The hierarchy in the Danish digital network is reduced to two levels only.

The telephone network is characterised by the fact that before any two subscribers can com-municate a full two-way duplex connection must be created, and the connection existsduring the whole duration of the communication. This property is referred to as the tele-phone network being connection oriented as distinct from for example the Internet whichis connection-less.
Any network applying for example line—switching or circuit—switching isconnection oriented. A packet switching network may be either connection oriented for ex-ample virtual connections in ATM or connection-less.
It can be both point-to point connections and point to multi-point connections distributionand broadcast. The terminal is cheap and mobile. It is thuspossible to bypass the public telephone network. Theavailable bandwidth is typically partitioned into channels of 64 Kbps, and the connections can beone-way or two-ways. In the simplest version, all terminals transmit directly to all others, and a full mesh network is theresult.
Dynamical assignment gives better utilisation but requires morecontrol.
Due to the small parabola antenna and an attenuation of typically dB in each direction,it is practically impossible to avoid transmission error, and error correcting codes and possibleretransmission schemes are used. A more reliable system is obtained by introducing a main terminal a hub with an antenna of 4 to 11 meters in diameter. A communication takes place through thehub. The price to be paid is that the propagation delay now is ms. The hub solution also enablescentralised control and monitoring of the system. Since all communication is going through the hub,the network structure constitutes a star topology.
Another kind of data network is given in the so-called packet distribution network, whichworks according to the store-and-forward principle see Fig. The data to be transmittedare not sent directly from transmitter to receiver in one step but in steps from exchange toexchange. This may create delays since the exchanges which are computers work as delaysystems connection-less transmission. The protocol header of the packet contains asequence number such that the packets can be arranged in correct order at the receiver.
Furthermore error correction codes are used and the correctness of each packet is checkedat the receiver. If the packet is correct an acknowledgement is sent back to the precedingnode which now can delete its copy of the packet. If the preceding node does not receive Finally, there is a control of the whole message fromtransmitter to receiver. In this way a very reliable transmission is obtained. If the wholemessage is sent in a single packet, it is denoted message—switching.
Normally, only one user at a time can use the transmission medium and getsome data transmitted to another user. Since the transmission system has a large capacitycompared to the demand of the individual users, a user experiences the system as if he isthe only user.

There exist several types of local area networks. Applying adequate strategiesfor the medium access control MAC principle, the assignment of capacity in case of manyusers competing for transmission is taken care of. All terminals are all thetime listening to the transmission medium and know when it is idle and when it is occupied.
At the same time a terminal can see which packets are addressed to the terminal itself andtherefore needs to be stored. A terminal wanting to transmit a packet transmit it if themedium is idle. If the medium is occupied the terminal wait a random amount of time beforetrying again. This is denoted as a collision. In local area network of the token type, it is only the terminal presently possessing the tokenwhich can transmit information.
Local area networks based on the ATM technique are also in operation. Furthermore, wirelessLANs are becoming common. The propagation is negligible in local area networks due tosmall geographical distance between the users. In for example a satellite data network thepropagation delay is large compared to the length of the messages and in these applicationsother strategies than those used in local area networks are used.
For mobile communications a subset of these bands arereserved. Each band corresponds to a limited number of radio telephone channels, and it ishere the limited resource is located in mobile communication systems. The optimal utilisationof this resource is a main issue in the cellular technology. In the following subsection arepresentative system is described. When a certain geographical area is to be supplied with mobile telephony, asuitable number of base stations must be put into operation in the area.

A mobile telephone exchange Radio waves are damped whenthey propagate in the atmosphere and a base station is therefore only able to cover a limitedgeographical area which is called a cell not to be confused with ATM—cells. It is not possible to use the same radio frequency in two neighbour basestations but in two base stations without a common border the same frequency can be usedthereby allowing the channels to be reused.
By dividing the frequencies into 3 groups A, B and C they can be reused as shown. In Fig.
Teletraffic Analyses of Blocked Calls and Handoff Failures of LEO Mobile Satellite Systems
In densely populated areas as major cities the cells will be small while in sparselypopulated areas the cells will be large. Channel allocation is a very complex problem. In addition to the restrictions given above,a number of other also exist. For example, there has to be a certain distance number ofchannels between two channels on the same base station neighbour channel restriction andto avoid interference also other restrictions exist.
In mobile telephone systems a database with information about all the subscriberhas to exist. The control channel is a radio channel used by the base station for control. The The B-subscriber recognises his own number andinforms through the control channel in which cell base station he is in.
This takes place automatically by cooperation betweenthe MTX and the subscriber equipment normally without being noticed by the subscriber. Since it is improper to interrupt an existing call, hand-over calls aregiven higher priorities than new calls. This strategy can be implemented by reserving one ortwo idle channels for hand-over calls.
A message to the home MTX is forwarded with information on the new position. Outgoing calls will be taken care of the usual way. Paging systems are primitive one-way systems. They can be applied locally in companies,business centres etc. Satellite communication systems are also being planned in which the satellite station corre-sponds to a base station. The satellites have orbits only a few hundred kilometres above theEarth.
Thus, the user can modify the satellite orbital and traffic generation parameters. The software was developed to analyzes the teletraffic performance of a non-geostationary satellite non-GEO mobile communication particularly on Low Earth Orbit LEO satellite such as Iridium system. The simulation results are expressed in term of the new call blocking probability P nb and the handover failure probability P hf. The channel assignments involve satellite main beam and spot beams based on two criteria; the elevation angle and the mobile terminal location knowledge.
