This paper describes the present status as well as future trends of an electronic information network system oriented toward the next generation. From the basic point of view, problems and issues which need to be overcome in a practical manner are discussed. As a result of the current internet system and also recent higher speed networks, human beings are being unreasonably forced to adapt to the limited environments compared with a smoother more realistic environment for human behaviour in nature. Due to the network's immature unconsciousness of space and time, and our everyday dependency on it, such human behaviour is not easily realised by using an electronic network. Basic human communication and the everyday communication process is an important part between human behaviour and its environment. The behaviour of human beings cannot be unconsciously applied to the above network types because the communication gap between space and time causes a communication obstruction. There are some concrete case studies that are reported to have tentative solutions toward applications for advanced realtime software concepts and fundamentals for a multimedia telecommunications environment.
