In this paper we describe an architecture which: Permits the deployment and execution of components in appropriate geographical locations. Provides security mechanisms that prevent misuse of the architecture. Supports a programming model that is familiar to application programmers. Permits installed components to share data. Permits the deployed components to communicate via communication channels. Provides evolution mechanisms permitting the dynamic rearrangement of inter-connection topologies the components that they connect. Supports the specification and deployment of distributed component deployments.
