The International Telecommunications Union (ITU) has approved a new set of standards that should enable communications companies to transfer a range of services smoothly between circuit switch networks and Internet protocol platforms.

The requirements written into the fourth version of the Intelligent Network Capability Set (IN CS-4) are designed to promote interoperability between the two systems.

Yukio Hiramatsu, chairman of the ITU group that developed the new standards, said, "The IN CS-4 expands previous Intelligent Network capabilities, enabling the provision of telecommunication services, service creation and service management.

"This convergence of circuit-switched and packet-switched technologies will provide valuable capabilities for deployment by service providers."
