The convergence of the Internet and Telecommunication Architectures is a
key issue in today’s telecommunication world. It is foreseen that future versions of
UMTS will be all-IP based, and therefore the interest in this area is increasing. The focus
in this paper is to show how to access IN-services from the Internet and other IP-based
networks. Previous research of the interworking between PSTN and IP-networks will be
discussed. The respective advantages of different architectures are presented and some
solutions of building a bridge between the protocols used in these networks are
described. Further, this paper presents some of the performance problems that may occur
in such systems.
