Abstract

Self-adaptation of communication protocols is a major issue in the conception of future QoS-oriented services for the ambient Internet. Our approach is based on behavioural and architectural adaptation properties of dynamically configurable Transport protocols. This paper proposes an architecture for the QoS provisioning at the Transport level. To fulfil this provisioning, the decision process follows a policy-based framework, using different external models in order to have an extensible design. We illustrate the use of this framework in a case study for the QoS optimization of a mobile user, roaming from a wired network to a wireless network.
