To configure current networks a large number of parameters have to be taken into account. Indeed, we can optimize a network in different ways: Optimize battery capacity, optimize reliability of the network, optimize QoS, optimize the security, optimize the mobility management, and so on. In this paper we begin by proving that the TCP/IP architecture is not the best protocol in a specific wireless experiment: the energy consumption on a Wi-Fi network. Then, we propose a new architecture, Goal-Based Networking (GBN) architecture, using adaptable protocols named STP/SP protocols (Smart Transport Protocol/Smart Protocol) able to optimize locally the communications through the networks. Finally we discuss the pros and cons of this new architecture.
