About this title


Here's an outstanding introduction to intelligent network (IN) concepts, technology, and applications for use in mobile communications networks. It helps assure your success in bringing new services to market by clearly explaining the technology, relevant standards, marketability concerns, product development issues, and even evolutionary trends.

This book is extremely useful in helping service developers understand the real-world issues involved with bringing new services to market, and equally valuable in educating ex-wireline professionals and non-technical executives on IN mobile networking issues and technology.

If you're new to the business, you'll appreciate the discussions of wireless IN standards, recommended business strategies, and applications. More experienced readers will learn more about the technology behind roaming, and the convergence of wireless and Internet communications.

Distinguishing this book from others in the field, and of particular value to more advanced readers, is the coverage of SS7, INAP, GSM, CAMEL, ANSI-41/WIN, ISUP loopback signaling, and proprietary IN technologies.

All readers will find the book a superb reference with clear descriptions, helpful diagrams, and an extensive glossary covering everything from basic mobile concepts to a detailed overview of the IN Conceptual Model.


As existing carriers hire additional engineers and new telecommunications companies get underway, there's ever-increasing demand for people who know about Intelligent Network (IN) operations. Wireless Intelligent Networking explains how the IN works (especially in the United States), particularly the network's means of interacting with mobile communications systems. The book was written by working telecoms engineers, and though it is carefully organized (it's usually pretty easy to find a section on the protocol or other mechanism that interests you, for example), it's a little hard to decode on the first pass because of the nature of the subject. Advice to the reader: have specifications documents (relevant ones are listed in the endnotes) on hand as you read so that you can compare two presentations of the same facts and thus understand more quickly.

Discussion on the protocols that come into play during mobile interaction with the IN includes a fantastic level of detail. To cite one example, the different approaches to Calling Name Presentation (CNAP) taken by IS-764 and IS-771 are explored, and each specification is further explained via a chart that details the flow of messages between parties. Similarly excellent documentation appears for all applicable protocols, established and emerging. The business issues associated with wireless IN are also discussed. The material is good, but for a book-length treatment of emerging telecoms technologies and the industry surrounding them, read Telecommunications Convergence. --David Wall
