Agent technology demands Support to build complex. open and large-scale applications. Therefore, efficient, scalable and robust Multiagent Platforms are needed. The performance of current Multiagent platforms, which are usually developed in Java, has been tested in different studies. Results presented in these studies show that the performance of these Multiagent Platforms is not as good as one could expect. We present in this paper a different approach of a Multiagent Platform closer to the Operating System level to improve the performance achieved. This platform is focused on offering the main services required by a Multiagent platform and also improving the functionality of some of them, such as the messaging service. In this sense, we extend this functionality with advanced communication mechanisms such as agent groups and predefined interaction protocols. We also present a performance evaluation of the current platform implementation.
