Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0124499A1] The invention is a communication system (100) and a method of communication. A communication system in accordance with the invention includes a first network (102) containing a plurality of first network entities (12) which originate and receive first network communications and to which the first network communications are addressed by a first address type associated therewith; and a second network (104), coupled to the first network, containing a plurality of second network entities (18) which originate and receive second network communications and to which the second network communications are addressed by a second address type associated therewith and which, in response to the second type of address, transmits second network communications associated with the second address type to at least one second network entity. The second network also receives first network communications from the first network entities and delivers the first network communications to at least one second network entity. A managing network (557), associated with the first network, manages operation of the first network including first network communication setup and routing and control thereof and provides address mapping between an address of the first type of the at least one second network entity to which the first network communications are addressed from the first network entities and an assigned address of the second type of the at least one second network entity which receives the first network communications and provides the assigned address to the second network in association with the second network communications. The second network delivers the first network communications to the at least one second network entity addressed with the assigned address of the second type associated with the second network communications.
