Services for advanced communication networks are described in this paper. An artificial neural network will be used for the control of network elements, in the authors' case a switch. Classical sequence data processing is substituted by parallel processing. The classical switch and the switch controlled by a Kohenen artificial neural network are compared. The switch has four ports and its own Quality of Service (QoS) control. Services such as FTP, HTTP, VoIP and QoS mechanisms without QoS, Best Effort QoS, FIFO QoS, Integrated Services (IntServ) and Differentiated Services (DiffServ) are simulated and compared. The level of priority contains the overhead of IP packet as the Type of Service (ToS) or also as Differentiated Services Code Point (DSCP).
