This paper presents a new architecture for integrating Networked Appliances, called Virtual Network Appliance (VNA). Instead of merely connecting appliances seen in existing approaches, VNA architecture enables users to create a networked appliance by assembling functional components of existing appliances. Users can achieve dynamic adaptation and personal customization, exploiting VNA.
