Abstract

See full text

In a trunk transmission network for transmitting information signals between nodes via paths, flexible path operation is achieved by setting up paths between source nodes and destination nodes after pre-classifying paths into a higher service class in which any loss of information occurring in that path is restored, and a lower service class which permits loss of information to occur in the path. The flexible operation is further achieved by arranging for each node, when it acts as a source node, to recognize the service class of the information signal it is sending to a destination node, and to select a path corresponding to that service class.
