## Info

If the number of circuits in the trunk group increased to 13, the blocking probability is 0.02 or 2%. If the similar iteration procedure as in table 8.2 is made, the difference in blocking probability can be identified. Fig. 8.9 shows the blocking probability of LCR with LCC.

Fig. 8.9. Blocking probability of LCR with LCC. 8.4.3. Lost Calls Held (LCH) System

In a lost calls held system, blocked calls are held by the system and serviced when the necessary facilities become available. The total time spend by a call is the sum of waiting time and the service time. Each arrival requires service for a continuous period of time and terminates its request independently of its being serviced or not. If number of calls blocked, a portion of it is lost until a server becomes free to service a call. An example of LCH system is the time assigned speech interpolation (TASI) system.

LCH systems generally arise in real time applications in which the sources are continuously in need of service, whether or not the facilities are available. Normally, telephone network does not operate in a lost call held manner. The LCH analysis produces a conservative design that helps account for retries and day to day variations in the busy horn calling intensities. A TASI system concentrates some number of voice sources onto a smaller number of transmission channels. A source receives service only when it is active. If a source becomes active when all channels are busy, it is blocked and speech clipping occurs. Each speech segment starts and stops independently of whether it is served or not. Digital circuit multiplication (DCM) systems in contrast with original TASI, can delay speech for a small amount of time, when necessary to minimize the clipping.

LCH are easily analysed to determine the probability of the total number of calls in the system at any one time. The number of active calls in the system at any time is identical to the number of active sources in a system capable of carrying all traffic as it arises. Thus the distribution of the number in the system is the poisson distribution. The poisson distribution given as

The probability that k sources requesting service are being blocked is simply the probability that k + N sources are active when N is the number of servers.
