SECTION – I
QI) a) State and explain switching functions of switching system. 
b) Draw typical centralised SPC organisation. State the processor configuration used. Explain the various modes of this configuration in brief. 
Q2) a) Explain the operation of sequential Read/Random write time division time switching with a neat block diagram. 
b) Derive and calculate the unavailability for dual processor system with MTBF = 1500 HRS. and MTTR = 8 HRS. in 30 years. 
Q3) a) Define and explain 
i) Grade of service.
ii) Average Holding time.
iii) Call completion rate.
iv) Erlang and CCS.
b) A group of 20 trunks provides a grade of service of 0.015 when offered 12 E of traffic. 
i) How much is the grade of service improved if one extra trunk is added to the group?
