This paper describes the traffic analysis of TSTST type building block speech paths. The main component of this configuration is the switch module. It consists of a small‐sized T‐switch and part of an S‐switch. TSTST configuration is used to make a large capacity switching system with these switch modules. Conventionally, TST configuration was used mainly for speech paths. However, the number of stages must be increased in order to make a large capacity switching system using switch networks with small channel multiplicity. The traffic handling characteristics of TSTST are almost the same as those of TST with the same size T‐switch and the same total number of channels, and this configuration can be applied to a wide range of speech path sizes. Furthermore, flexibility and reliability can be improved by adding alternative links to the fundamental TSTST configuration, and thereby link efficiency can be improved by a few percent compared with the configuration without alternative links.
