Abstract: Current Intelligent Network solutions will undergo considerable evolution to support the mobile and broadband networks of tomorrow. The present generation of Service Control Points, Home Location Registers and Intelligent Peripherals will give way to generic IN computing platforms which are capable of supporting a wide range of services. Requirements will develop over time, suggesting the need for highly adaptable computing solutions. Three key properties are needed to enable this adaptability : scalability, programmability, and modularity. This paper outlines the argument that a distributed, component oriented, approach will emerge to meet the needs of the future.
