This paper proposes an agent communication system, in which many communication system's elements, such as communication services, charging and network operation functions, are expressed as agents and multimedia communication services are offered that multi-agents negotiate with each other. The agent communication system is the third communication system. The first communication model is the circuit communication model for telephone services, and the second communication model is the packet communication model for data communication services. The agent communication model is based on the concept of distributed cooperative agent-oriented networking. First, an agent-oriented software architecture is introduced for supporting multimedia communication services in wide-area networks. Multimedia services are expressed as agents. Next, this paper proposes an agent request broker for multimedia communication services in an agent communication wide-area network. The agent request broker is the platform for multi-agents, which is based on the concept of agent-oriented software. Furthermore, a five-layer agent communication networking architecture is proposed. Finally, personal communication telephone services, video-mail services and video-on-demand services are presented by using the agent communication system's experimental setup of IP-over-ATM
