On teleprocessing system design, Part II: A method for approximating the optimal network

by L. R. Esau, K. C. Williams
A teleprocessing system may include many low-speed terminals at great distances from the computing center. Specification of a communication network for connecting the remote terminals to the central computer constitutes an important design problem. An iterative method for obtaining an approximate solution to an optimum network is presented. The method assumes that an acceptable line utilization factor is given.
