This paper discusses future requirements for enabling rapid service deployment by active networks. To enable the integration of programmable networks and active networking an object-oriented, distributed approach based on Object Request Broker (ORB) technology is presented. A Distributed Processing Environment (DPE) is described as an interoperable service platform, for dynamic and secure service provisioning support. As a platform service, a resource control framework adaptively manages router resource allocation, provides virtual resource abstraction and dynamic partitioning, to achieve the goal of scalable and secure active networking. As an example of active services, advanced reservation is developed and measured to evaluate the performance of object-oriented implementation of network services and the efficiency of underlying resource control paradigm.
