In this paper, we present the SmartNet architecture, an open and extensible software framework for experimenting with and deploying application-transparent network adaptation solutions. The framework fashions a plugin-based system architecture where each plugin implements a small set of application or transport protocol speci c network adapta- tion requirements and can be chained with other plugins to form a packet processing pipeline. Multiple concurrent packet pipelines are con gurable to enable selected tra c ows to dynamically switch between native IP, split-TCP, and DTN, based on observed network conditions. The end user is able to con gure not only which ows should use split-TCP or DTN, but also the conditions under which each option should be used.
