IN & CAMEL (with pre-paid)

his course explains the role that the IN concept and CAMEL play in allowing effective control of services and features in modern telecommunication networks.

Over the two days potential services and applications are discussed and used to illustrate the value that both IN and CAMEL can bring to both operators and users. Specifically, the role and operation of CAMEL in mobile Prepaid solutions.

A clear explanation is given of the Intelligent Network Application Part (INAP), Mobile Application Part (MAP), and CAMEL Application Part (CAP) and how they interact with Call Control Protocols (ISDN User Part – ISUP) to provide control of the overall service. Examples are used throughout to illustrate different call and service scenarios.
