Availability analysis of a multiplex system
Abstract
The availability probability in a mathematical model of a multiplex system is analyzed. The model assumes S multiplexing level and Z lines per group and level, giving a total of N = Z to the S power signal paths. The method to compute the probability of having available at least p inletoutlet paths is described. An example refering to a numerical multiplexing unit of 4th order (from 2048 Mbit/sec to 139264 Mbit/sec) is presented. For given malfunction and repairing frequencies the availability is computed as a function of the number of paths in utilization.
