Common channel signaling (CCS) message network configuration analysis results are presented related for Signalnet, GTE's shared CCS network. A design tool based on a linear programming model performing mixed integer optimization is described and used to solve the topological design problem. This tool is used to determine the number of signal transfer points (STPs) required in the network, where they should be located, and service switching point (SSP) homing on STP's. Hypothetical snapshots of the network in 1989, 1992, and 1996 are presented, including an optimal two-level hierarchy of regional and local STPs
