"In telecommunications systems, trunking is the aggregation of multiple user circuits into a single channel. The aggregation is achieved using some form of multiplexing. Trunking theory was developed by Agner Krarup Erlang, Erlang based his studies of the statistical nature of the arrival and the length of calls. The Erlang B formula allows for the calculation of the number of circuits required in a trunk based on the Grade of Service and the amount of traffic in Erlangs the trunk needs cater for. ...
In order to provide connectivity between all users on the network one solution is to build a full mesh network between all endpoints. A full mesh solution is however impractical, a far better approach is to provide a pool of resources that end points can make use of in order to connect to foreign exchanges. ...
The Danish mathematician Agner Krarup Erlang is the founder of teletraffic engineering. Erlang developed the fundamentals of trunking theory while investigating how a large population can be serviced by a limited number of servers. Trunking theory leverages off the statistical behaviour of users accessing the network, these characteristics discussed in the assumptions of the Erlang B equation."
