Abstract

A possible model for future network management is proposed. This is based on a community of bacterial strains, each organism handling network requests in the same way as bacteria metabolise energy sources. This model makes use of the unique methods that bacteria use to transfer and share genetic material, to create a more robust solution to the service provision problems associated with future data networks. A community of autonomous, bacteria-like nodes appears to provide some degree of self-stabilising behaviour.
