Bell Telephone Magazine, Vol. 47 : January/February 1968 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Bell Telephone Magazine, Vol. 47: January/February 1968 Unlike other machines, the switched network must grow and change while it is operating. It can never be shut down while improvements are made. Thus, any changes in the nation's communications network must be evolutionary. The wholesale scrapping of working equipment in which billions have been in vested and replacing it with new would be as unthink able from the financial point of view as it would be disastrous in terms of service disruption. And, as the system evolves, all additions must be compatible with existing equipment. Innovations must also be proved out in terms of their practical value and they must meet rigid reliability and cost standards to meet the overall Bell System objectives.
