The design of the current Internet lacks in adaptability to accommodate novel network uses and functional requirements. It is therefore important to explore how new services can be introduced into the network infrastructure. We present a novel network architecture that can accommodate the deployment and custom instantiation of such network services. We discuss the motivation for our design and several of the research challenges that arise in this context.
