Intelligent networks (INs) will allow wide area roaming and location of individuals so that true anytime, anywhere, any form communications can take place. Personal communications will put new demands on INs. The architectures of existing INs may need to be modified to accommodate the new capabilities required to support such services. In particular, the databases that put the “intelligence” in IN will have many more demands placed upon them due to the changes in scope and content. We identify some of the teletraffic and architectural issues associated with the support of personal and mobile communications by IN databases. We first provide some context by reviewing IN architecture, personal communications, and the data required to support it. We then look at a pseudoservice example to better understand the implications for query and update traffic that must be handled by the databases. We also identify same of the most important issues that must be addressed by database manufacturers and IN providers to realize the promise of truly transparent personal and terminal mobility
