Within integrated services digital networks (ISDN), all inter-change signaling messages for ISDN and intelligent network (IN) call controls are carried through a common channel signaling network (CCSN) as a backbone signaling network. Since CCSN usually have very strict reliability requirements as well as good performance objectives, performance and reliability of CCSN need to be jointly analyzed. This paper evaluates the mean end-to-end delay of a single-mated pair (SMP) CCSN for various call-arrival rates in a normal state and several failure states, as a performance index. As a performability index, this paper also analyzes the mean time to unreliable operation (MTUO) of a given network for various call-arrival rates at each signaling end point (SEP) and the failure rate of each signaling transfer point (STP). These results can be used in the design of common-channel signaling networks. This performability evaluation can be further studied for varying the failure rates of SEP and linksets, and the various threshold values of the unreliable operation
