The Advanced Intelligent Network (Advanced IN) is now commercialized and the Internet is becoming popular all over the world. If these two networks were connected, the potential would exist for new services. This paper surveys and analyzes the possibility of improving both the Internet and Advanced IN with an Advanced IN-the Internet connection. Service customization, which allows customers to define their own service specifications, is one of the most important service applications for the Advanced IN. However, some issues must be resolved before that service can be offered. This paper proposes a solution in which Internet technologies are applied to the IN. We review the system architecture of Service Logic Program (SLP) definition and execution in NTT's IN for service customization. Version management and cost for delivery are the major issue for service customization with the SLP(C) creation tool. We suggest an Internet version of the SLP(C) creation tool to solve these problems. Results of the prototype shows that connecting the IN and the Internet for service customization will benefit both customers and telecommunication operators.
