    The advanced intelligent network (AIN) is examined in terms of its history, present day architecture, and future evolution. The history of the AIN is traced from predivestiture 800 and calling card service capabilities, through IN/1, IN/2, and IN/1+, leading to the various AIN releases. The present-day view of the AIN architecture includes the switching system and other network systems, as well as operations. The AIN functionality supported by this architecture is described from a customer point of view, by means of an illustrative service that could be provided from an AIN platform. The next steps in the AIN evolution are discussed. An appendix that provides detailed information about the AIN Release 1 call model is included.<> View full abstract»

    The Office of the Manager, National Communications System (OMNCS) is charged with developing an evolutionary architecture using the existing assets of the public switched network (PSN) to meet the changing national security and emergency preparedness (NS/EP) telecommunications requirements of its 23 NCS member organizations. The OMNCS explores options for integrating new PSN-based technology into its NS/EP telecommunications plans. The advanced intelligent network (AIN) technology is one technology that is being introduced into the PSN by commercial carriers. The AIN is an evolving service independent network architecture that provides rapid service feature development and new service delivery. Because of the environment in which NS/EP users carry out their mission (e.g., during natural disasters, network congestion, and other stressed environments), their telecommunications requirements are much more stringent than those of other users. To ensure that service capabilities employed to support NS/EP are suitable from a survivability perspective, the OMNCS developed evaluation criteria that-can be used to assess the suitability of various AIN candidate configurations to support NS/EP needs based on their architectural characteristics. This paper describes the survivability criteria that can be used to evaluate the survivability of the different configurations in providing enduring NS/EP service View full abstract»

    Power and energy issues have significantly gained in importance in computing environments in the last few decades. In a world of mobile devices and massive-scale data centers, low-power systems are crucial for cost, availability, and the environment. Minimizing power consumption in a computing system is a complex problem that can be addressed with various strategies and on various levels. In this paper we focus on System-on-Chip (SoC), and in particular on power-efficient Network-on-Chip (NoC) topologies. The popular saying that “there ain't no such thing as a free lunch” applies to computing systems likewise. In the quest for power and performance optima in the design space of NoC, we investigate non-local interconnect architectures for SoC. By adopting a complex network perspective and by employing an optimization technique, we show that small-world networks with power-law distance-dependent wire-length distributions are more power-efficient while offering the same performance than simple small-world topologies. We argue that such networks occupy optimal spots in the design space of NoCs. Our results are particularly relevant for addressing the scalability problem of global (or long-range) links, for building more power-efficient computers, and for emerging computing devices built through self-assembly.

    Individual perspectives on advanced intelligent network (AIN) implementation are presented from four regional companies in the Unites States: Bell Atlantic, BellSouth, Ameritech, and US WEST. These perspectives range from trial to deployment activities and address a range of capabilities supported by the AIN architecture. AIN participation by all regional companies in the United States is summarized.<> View full abstract»

    Web services communities can be seen as virtual clusters that agglomerate Web services with the same functionality (e.g., FlightBooking). However, selecting a community to deal with is a challenging task to users and providers. Reputation, besides other selection criteria, has been widely used for evaluating and ranking candidates. Interestingly, the definition of community reputation from the perspective of users differs from the perspective of Web service providers. In this paper, we introduce a reputation-based Web services community architecture and define some of the performance metrics that are needed to assess the reputation of a Web service community as perceived by users and providers.

    The full impact of the `Intelligent Network' (IN) or the `Advanced Intelligent Network' (AIN) is being felt in Europe. The main driving forces for AIN are the new revenue opportunities for service providers which make use of the ubiquity of their networks. This paper outlines steps towards ensuring that equipment has the necessary capability/functionality (intelligence) to realize the potential of these opportunities. `Call Centres, shows how complex high value applications can be built up. `Global VPNs' illustrates the global potential of AIN services. The functional units of the IN architectures are outlined for Europe and for North America. Some of the challenges to equipment suppliers that follow from these architectures are discussed. In a European context these challenges are technical, organizational, and regulatory View full abstract»

    The authors outline a potential AIN (advanced intelligent network) evolution in three broad phases. Emphasis is placed on the evolution of network capabilities, the progression of service opportunities, and the evolution issues. The initial phase has already been discussed at an industry level and is currently being deployed as IN Release 0 by Ameritech. The second phase is a preliminary view of what may be an appropriate next step based on the current assessment of customers' needs. The customer perspective on what capabilities are most useful, what capabilities are urgently needed in the next phase, and where in the network these capabilities should be located may be modified as services are deployed. Therefore, the precise definition of this IN proposal remains open. In addition, an effort is made here to examine the capabilities and technologies beyond those included in these two platforms that could be included in future phases of AIN. These include, but are not limited to, multiway capabilities, data capabilities, and dynamic service interaction schemes View full abstract»

    The author defines service completion time (SCT), a measure parallel to the POTS (plain old telephone system) call-setup time. SCT will be used to evaluate AIN (advance intelligent network) services. This proposed SCT model takes into account new characteristics and new call patterns introduced by AIN services and can be used to analyze these services from both the user's and the network's perspective. How components of SCT can be allocated to network elements is illustrated View full abstract»
