This paper describes a transport system architecture called ADAPTIVE that we are developing to support multimedia applications utilizing high-speed networks. ADAPTIVE stands for "A Dynamically Assembled Protocol Transformation, Integration, and Validation Environment." It is a transformation-based system with the goal of providing policies and mechanisms for interactively specifying and configuring a flexible and adaptive transport system. In addition, it aims to provide a controlled prototyping environment for monitoring, analyzing, and experimenting with the effects of different transport system designs and implementations on application performance.
