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.
