The Time-Slot-Interchangers TSI in the Switching Modules SM , one per several hundred to few thousand telephone lines or several hundred trunks or mixture thereof, sport their own processors, which perform most call handling processes, using their own memory boards. Originally the peripheral processors were to be Intel , but those proved inadequate and the system was introduced with Motorola series processors.

Evolution of the system took place over 20 years, while three releases were often being developed simultaneously, each taking about three years to develop. Another version was the 5E-XC. The SM performs multiplexing, analog and digital coding, and other work to interface with external equipment.
Each has a controller, a small computer with duplicated CPUs and memories, like most common equipment of the exchange, for redundancy. Each has its own processors , also called Module Controllers, which perform most call handling processes , using their own memory boards.
Originally the peripheral processors were to be Intel , but those proved inadequate and the system was introduced with Motorola series processors.
The name of the cabinet that houses this equipment was changed at the same time from Interface Module to Switching Module. The Time Slot Interchanger TSI in the SM uses random-access memory to delay each speech sample to fit into a time slot which will carry its call through the exchange to another or, in some cases, the same SM.
These may serve either interoffice trunks or, using Integrated Subscriber Loop Carrier , subscriber lines. These links may be short, for example within the same building, or may connect to SMs in remote locations.
Limited availability saves money with incompletely filled matrixes. The Line Unit can have up to 16 GDX boards connecting to the channel boards by shared B links, but in offices with heavier traffic for lines a lesser number of GDX boards are equipped. AM contains the hard drives and tape drives used to load and backup the central and peripheral processor software and translations.
Disk drives were originally several megabyte SMD multi-platter units in a separate frame. Now they consist of several redundant multi-gigabyte SCSI drives that each reside on a card. The Administrative Module is built on the 3B21D platform and is used to load software to the many microprocessors throughout the switch and to provide high speed control functions. It provides messaging and interface to control terminals. Once the 3B21D has loaded the software into the 5ESS and the switch is activated, packet switching takes place without further action by the 3B21D, except for billing functions requiring records to be transferred to disk for storage.
Because the processor has duplex hardware, one active side, and one standby side, a failure of one side of the processor will not necessarily result in a loss of switching. CMs perform time-divided switching and are provided in pairs; each module cabinet belonging to Office Network and Timing Complex ONTC 0 or 1, roughly corresponding to the switch planes of other designs. Each optical link consists of two multimode optical fibers with ST connectors to plug into transceivers plugged into backplane wiring at each end.
CMs receive time-multiplexed signals on the receive fiber and send them to the appropriate destination SM on the send fiber. An RSM has a limited distance and can serve parts of a larger metro area or rural offices. The distance on this was 2 miles from a host office and fed direct via fiber. As with any SM, the size is dictated by the number of time slots needed for each peripheral unit.
Small communities of less than lines or so were also provided with SLC units or Anymedia units.

It is the worlds th-largest company measured by revenues according to swutching Fortune Global and is a component of the Euro Stoxx 50 stock market index, the company has had various industries in its year history. The 5ESS switching system: factory system testing The Line Unit can have up to 16 GDX boards connecting to the channel boards by shared B links, but in offices with heavier traffic for lines a lesser number of GDX boards syshem equipped. CMs receive time-multiplexed signals on the receive fiber and send them to the appropriate destination SM on the send fiber. Based on the physical model of a bulk reflective semiconductor optical amplifier RSOA used as a modulator in radio over fiber RoF links, the distributions of carrier density, signal photon density, and amplified spontaneous emission photon density are demonstrated.
