Abstract : The Busy Hour Model is a series of computer programs developed to simulate voice communication networks. It is particularly applicable to the AUTOVON portion of the Defense Communication System (DCS). The model is a steady state simulator that distributes traffic through a network and calculates grade of service from probability equations. It is used by traffic engineers for design and performance studies of various network configurations. It is written in FORTRAN and ANSI COBOL for execution on an IBM 360 or 370 computer system having 700K or more bytes of memory. This manual contains the information necessary to use the model. It describes the input data, control cards, and program options. It contains diagrams of program execution and data flow and examples of the job control language cataloged procedures. (Author)
