Title: Three tier client/server model for legacy switches

Abstract: The present invention adapts the 3 tier client/server concept to the legacy switch environment of a prepaid system providing a more highly specialized telephony switch with an improved developmental capacity. Functionality is removed from the switch to an abstraction layer through the use of an integrated network server, permitting the switch to become more specialized. The integrated network server, running Windows NT, supports open platform architecture to meet evolving system needs.
