Abstract(in English) This paper evaluates ATM network architecture in terms of tandem switch(SW),cross-connect(XC)and merged switch, cross-connect(SW-XC) functional allocation in two or three layered networks.We evaluate the network cost in changing the offered traffic between local switching nodes and the network size:Evaluation results show that the cost-effective functions allocated at the top layer nodes are changed.In low traffic conditions,SW allocation in the top layer realizes the lowest cost networks,while XC allocation in the top layer is cost-effective in high traffic conditions.In addition,the application area of using XCs extends with peak rate multiplexing compared with statistical multiplexing.Moreover,cost-effective network architecture is changed from two layered,network to three layered as the network size grows.
