This paper describes a future private network service and the system configurations for providing it. Technologies and service trends in local area and wide area networks are shown. As network services become more diversified and integrated, it becomes more difficult for users to use the networks effectively. This paper shows how this problem can be solved by using virtual network technology to attain seamless networking. It also presents the concept of group networking among many parties, which can be used as the basis for a virtual private network.
