To remind the reader in this juncture that WIS will be an integrated digital network which will provide various teleservices such as plain and secure voice, facsimile and data communications. Network architecture will be based on a common user, primarily circuit switched, area grid network. The area grid network is also called the nodal network consisting of about 25 nodal switches at the network nodes and some 50 internodal links connecting these nodes. This network forms level I. Level 2 is the access network, comprising the access equipment through which the users are connected to the network.
