The generalization of Internet continues to grow unabated, especially with the rapid adoption of mobile and fixed networks connecting a myriad of devices at home and in business. This allows the acquisition of more services at low costs. In the future, anyone with any kind of devices at any time will be able to access any type of service from anywhere. New rapid and profitable methods for service creation must be investigated. In traditional telecommunication networks, the intelligence of a service has been achieved for so long at the heart of the network. The Internet intermediation involves moving the intelligence toward the edge of the network. A fresh look is needed to design and develop self-organizing networks so human intervention is minimized as much as possible. In this regard, we propose the autonomic-network-based application concept: NetApp. This is an architecture in which the applications and services are not supported by a pre-existing network, but where the network itself grows out of the applications and services that end users require. The major objective of this article is to propose an architecture for the adaptive and self-organizing ambient-aware applications and services in networking.
