The main problem to optimize wireless and mobile networks is the number of parameters that is playing a role in these systems. We can optimize the access to a service within such 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. We begin by proving that the TCP/IP architecture is not the best one in a specific wireless environment, 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.
