Future multiservice networks will be multifractal, and thus impossible to control accurately using conventional finite-state-machine models. Active networking can reduce the cost to operators by delegating management to network users, but this will increase the overall system complexity. Management architectures for active networks must therefore use a new approach. An open-ended alternative to existing architectures is proposed, based on delivering homeostasis using environmental control and feedback hierarchies.
