This paper presents a methodology for the design of hybrid switching systems. Hybrid switching enables both circuit and packet-switched services to be provided in the same communication network. A model for the analysis of blocking and delay of a hybrid switching link is developed. The capacity assignment problem for hybrid-switched networks is also formulated and solution techniques developed. These models are incorporated into an overall hybrid switching network design methodology, and applied to study alternative system operations.
