    In the past, pervasive systems have concentrated largely on integrating contextawareness for supporting application adaptations to suit user activities. However, with the increase complexity of pervasive computing applications and their requirements, there is also a need for more autonomic functionalities in the communication infrastructure to support this complexity. In this paper, we propose a hierarchical architecture based on active nodes, which maximizes the computational capabilities of various nodes within the pervasive computing environment, to support both pervasive user applications as well as autonomic functionalities within the communication infrastructures. The migratable active node architecture employs various decision-making processes for evaluating a rich set of context information.
