A collaborative case based study has established that Active Networks will have a very significant impact on Network operators. Active Networking appears to be the only route to adding integrated mobility, security, QoS and management services to existing networks. In the short to medium term operators will be keen to use Application Layer Active Networking since the risks are relatively low. However the benefits of moving to stronger forms as research progresses appear compelling.
