Sun, IBM lead telecoms Java alliance

JAIN to take Java into telecommunications intelligent networks

Sun, IBM, Bellcore and Trillium Digital Systems have teamed up to develop an implementation of Java for the telecoms business, JAIN, or Java in Advanced Intelligent Networks. JAIN is a telecoms industry framework for combining Web and intelligent network (IN) technologies, and is based on Sun's JavaBeans architecture. Sun intends to work with IBM and Bellcore, an IN developer, to produce JAIN interfaces for IN that are independent of underlying network infrastructure. Bellcore and Trillium will define JAIN standards for Signalling System 7 software protocol stacks. The first JAIN specifications will be issued for review later this year. ®
