The ability to dynamically adopt protocol functionality to the current situation will greatly improve performance, service availability and quality of service in the Future Internet. Nevertheless this provides a huge set of configuration and adaption options which have to be controlled intelligently and also in a timely manner. This creates need for a multi-level control and configuration framework. This paper presents a architecture for Dynamic Protocol Composition with some experimentation results and the design of a control and configuration framework that allows for efficient and reactive Protocol Composition and Execution while providing many options for configuration for a cognitive system and network management.
