Distributed systems form the underlying architecture of
consumer's Ambient Intelligence at 'home' and 'away'. To
analyze performance relations, a structuring in Tiers and
Peers is made. Functions are handled as 'blackboxes' or as
'grayboxes', the latter with some base function structuring
of the inside. A new method is introduced able to quantify
the performance of use cases as parts of consumer scenar
ios. Technology and infrastructure projection towards
medium and long term, say 2010 - 2015, is applied for
quantitative analysis on 'sensible' future requirements.
Some outcome is presented as example: valuable con
sumer information functions will tend to reside in the user
interaction terminals and at services.
