Two generations of integrated services digital network (ISDN), namely ISDN1 and ISDN2, have been developed in the last century. In our view, the convergence of ATM, Internet and active networks will form the basis for the next generation networks called ISDN3. We first review ISDN1 and ISDN2 as well as the Internet and active networks. We then discuss some fundamental questions related to the design of ISDN3. Finally, we compare ISDN3 with ISDN1 and ISDN2, and outline what ISDN3 might look like
