A lightweight multiagent system is deployed at each node in a communications network with the aim of self-organising the network
as usage alters. The distributed, light-weight, co-operative multiagent system guarantees scalability of the approach. As
the solution is distributed it is unsuitable to achieve any global optimisation goal — it simply seeks to continually improve
network performance as demands change. Algorithms are described for adjusting the communication channels and for adjusting
the network links. Experiments show that the method is robust and delivers good performance.
