This paper argues the need for lightweight decentralized self-managing frameworks and protocols to achieve the full potential from Pervasive Networks. Pervasive Networks by nature consist of devices that are computationally simple, typically utilize wireless comms and are not tethered to wired power sources. As such they would highly benefit from cooperative self-management to make the most of their limited resources while at the same time this autonomicity in-its-self needs to be lightweight. Promising work in the area is highlighted, that once combined, generalized and standardized should provide the promise of an Autonomic Pervasive Networks.
