ABSTRACT
<p>The field of active and programmable networks is rapidly expanding. These networks allow users and network designers to easily deploy new services.</p> <p>Active networks must deal with the need of portability for services to be easily implemented in active routers and the need of high performance design to efficiently transport multimedia streams.</p> <p>While most of proposed systems deal with adaptability, flexibility and new protocols by using JAVA, only few systems focus on high performance.</p> <p>We explore the design of intelligent network by proposing the Tamanoir<sup>1</sup> system, a complete framework dedicated to high performance active networking, which allows users to easily deploy and maintain services on distributed active routers.</p> <p>To guarantee the portability, Tamanoir routers, services and tools are programmed in Java. But, high performance aspects are also taken into account by minimizing JAVA software latency with a compiled approach. First experiments and comparisons with other active networks java-based systems will show the effectiveness and pertinence of our approach.</p>
