Summary: 
The introduction of Integrated Services Digital Networks (ISDNs) poses a variety of new questions on telecommunications network design and planning. Furthermore, the formulation of traditional network design and planning problems need to be revisited in the ISDN context. This paper presents an overview of the recent progress and new challenges in developing ISDN design and planning methodologies that exploit revolutionary new telecommunications technologies. It will cover some important issues for ISDN design and planning, and will concentrate on three issues that are of particular importance: Design of networks with digital information transfer capabilities, design of networks with advanced network/traffic control techniques, and use of reliability objectives for network design and planning.
