Learning outcomes:
Modern telecommunications has become a strategic factor for modern companies and is one of the fastest growing markets today. Modern call-centre applications exploit the full range of options offered by telecom networks. The telecommunications applications are supported by so-called intelligent networks (INs). IN platforms are used to incorporate new complex services into the telecom network. IN platforms are now being used not only in mobile and fixed network applications, but also in the internet. IN applications are network-independent. A major benefit of intelligent networks is that they have been completely specified by the ITU. Students will be taught about the architecture and operation of intelligent networks. This will involve redefining the term ‘service’ and learning how to describe service implementation in terms of processes.
