In both the military and the commercial Sector, requirements for interoperability between systems have grown. The fact that requirements change rapidly in the information age and that customer needs are unknown and often impossible to correctly predict has created the need for an architecture for communication systems that affords flexibility and interoperability. As an alternative to solving the interoperability problem for individual systems, the thesis introduces an object-based network interoperability model in which every system should be designed as a network object. In this thesis a case study of replacing technologies for the existing IPv4 protocol is presented. At the same time that the demand for interoperability increases, the customer demands that modern communication solutions like telephony- and video-conferencing is implemented to incur savings. Evolving constraint-based routing technology for implementation of a multiservice%network that can support full communication interoperability is also investigated as part of this thesis. As a practical example, the Norwegian Defense InterLAN (a nationwide military WAN in Norway) is used to discuss architectural issues and the techniques for migration strategies towards multiservice networks
