This talk presents an approach for providing Spontaneous Virtual Networks (SpoVNets) that enable flexible, adaptive, and spontaneous provisioning of application-oriented and network-oriented services on top of heterogeneous networks. SpoVNets supply new and uniform communication abstractions for future Internet applications so applications can make use of advanced services not supported by today's Internet. We expect that many functions, which are currently provided by SpoVNet on the application layer will become an integral part of future networks. Thus, SpoVNet will transparently use advanced services from the underlying network infrastructure as they become available (e.g., QoS-support in access networks or multicast in certain ISPs), enabling a seamless transition from current to future genera-tion networks without modifying the applications.
