This paper surveys recent trends in network-hosted end-user services, with an emphasis on the increasing complexity of those services due to the convergence of the conventional telephony, wireless, and data networks. In order to take full advantage of these services, private and corporate users will need personalized ways of accessing them. Support for this personalization will involve advances in both data and policy management.
