Automatic telephone switching and digital computation have much in common. Both rely upon discrete rather than continuous devices. Development of recent switching systems with a close functional resemblance to large digital computers has increased this overlap. The next big step in telephone switching should be towards electronics. In making this step, switching scientists and engineers can be much helped by modern electronic computer technology. To be successful, they must also contribute to this technology.
