    The Intelligent Network/2 (IN/2) architecture concept diverges from the traditional new service introduction approach by distributing call-processing capabilities across multiple network modules, by constructing network services with service-independent capabilities, and by using standard signaling protocols among the network elements. The IN/2 approach provides opportunities to implement new serv... View full abstract»

    The effect that integration of the intelligent network (IN) concept into the existing network architecture has on the capacity of the various network elements is addressed. The effect of excessive load on that and other existing services is also examined. The discussion covers: methods of characterizing capacity and performance; major causes of increased load with the IN; perception of increased d... View full abstract»

    A key factor in the transition of the existing network to an intelligent network (IN) environment is the need to partition the network intelligence and to ensure the coexistence of the embedded switch services with the externally controlled services. If the network intelligence can be defined by entities (e.g. access control and routing, connection control, basic call control, feature control, etc... View full abstract»
