Active networks is a popular area of research that aims to enable the addition of new services to the Internet by the users, using simple components that anyone can build. The techniques involved also allow the network infrastructure to automatically adapt to any changes in traffic patterns caused by the new services. This will increase network usage and revenues, while radically reducing the cost and complexity of service and network management.
