These include the importance of user-defined subnetworks for cost reduction, the fact that optimal routing is even more important for cost reduction than it was in the old regulated environment, and that the optimal routing pattern is obtained by allocating a certain fraction of the call traffic from each traffic destination group to each of the circuit facility trunk groups (This is not equivalent to an overflow pattern, in which one attempts to place all the traffic on one trunk group, with the overflow going to another trunk group, and its overflow to another, and so on).
It is possible to obtain a routing overflow pattern, called sequential overflow, which is a fairly good substitute for routing by allocation.
A fairly good substitute for allocation routing is a sequential overflow pattern, from each TDG to each CFTG, matched to the optimum allocation routing.
