AIN (Advanced Intelligent Network) - an explanation

Bellcore's switching concept that centralizes significant amount of intelligence rather than constantly placing more information in central office switch.Developed by Bell Communications Research, AIN is recognized as an industry standard in North America. Its initial version, AIN Release 1, is considered a model toward which services will evolve. Meanwhile, evolutionary subsets of AIN Release 1 have been developed. These are shown in the AIN Release Table below. Elsewhere, the International Telecommunications Union (see ITU-T), endorsing the concepts of AIN, developed an equivalent version of AIN called Capability Set 1 (CS-1). It comes in evolutionary subsets called the Core INAP capabilities.
