The introduction of networks providing Internet-like services such as the Open Computer Network (OCN) by NTT and others like it will lead to higher level demands by users. For example, users will be asking for higher quality, greater functionality, and lower charges for high-speed, high-throughput data transfer. To respond effectively to the wishes of sophisticated and varied users, technological development must be pursued from the user's point of view. For this reason, research and development is being performed on middle-ware to open up network functions and make it possible for the user and network to cooperate with each other. This paper discusses the development of major technologies for achieving an enhanced internetworking that should become a catalyst for the future multimedia network, and presents a future vision for the network.
