Programmable networks are a class of evolving network architecture aimed to overcome the slow evolution of existing network protocols by augmenting networking nodes and associated software drivers with the capability to be programmable. When applied, new services can be deployed and implemented rapidly to enable customization of network properties for domain-specific applications. In this paper, we propose the PANTA architecture, which will support robust and rapid deployment of new services over existing network infrastructures based on the concept of a transport splicing technique. It uses a graph-oriented approach as the unifying abstraction for programming the underlying active network structure.
