How can traffic carried be calculated, i.e. in which formula does traffic carried occur? 16th August 1999 at 14:16 #32411 Nabil AhmedGuest Offered Load is the traffic offered to a specific trunk group. Some of the load will be carried and some will be blocked. Thus, offered load = carried load + blocked load (if the trunk group is a blocking one) Offered Load = Carried Load + Overflow traffic (if the trunk group does not block) Carried Load can not be calculated, it is observed quatity (the switch management system or a data colector is resposible for pooling the data from the customer usage) Offered Load = carried Load / (1-Blocking Factor) 23rd May 2000 at 16:13 #32412 samGuest Hi, little question: because the switches can only provide the carried traffic, how can we calculate the offered traffic ? Thanks in advance. Sam. Author Posts Viewing 3 posts - 1 through 3 (of 3 total) The forum ‘Telecom Design’ is closed to new topics and replies.
