    An Erlang is a unit of telecommunications traffic measurement.  Strictly speaking, an Erlang represents the continuous use of one voice path.  In practice, it is used to describe the total traffic volume of one hour.
    For example, if a group of user made 30 calls in one hour, and each call had an average call duration of 5 minutes, then the number of Erlangs this represents is worked out as follows:

    Minutes of traffic in the hour = number of calls x duration
    Minutes of traffic in the hour = 30 x 5
    Minutes of traffic in the hour = 150
    Hours of traffic in the hour = 150 / 60
    Hours of traffic in the hour = 2.5
    Traffic figure = 2.5 Erlangs
    Erlang traffic measurements are made in order to help telecommunications network designers understand traffic patterns within their voice networks.  This is essential if they are to successfully design their network topology and establish the necessary trunk group sizes.
    Erlang traffic measurements or estimates can be used to work out how many lines are required between a telephone system and a central office (PSTN exchange lines), or between multiple network locations.
