A method for the automated design, specification, and implementation of protocol architectures is introduced. A natural-language-like protocol architecture specification technique, called Archetype, is formulated. This technique aids the design by enabling an unambiguous specification of the protocol architecture on the level of the communications technologies used, without involvement in the complex implementation details of these technologies. The author defines a data-driven concurrent execution model and specifies the generation of executable specifications from abstract protocol architecture specifications. The exploitation of parallelism in the execution model enables the fulfilment of performance constraints placed on protocol architectures. An architecture based on a single X.25-level 3-like protocol is used as an illustrative example
