Wireless broadband networking provides new challenges and benefits for applications. As the wireless link is always unreliable and interworking with other networking technologies is required, adaptable applications are a must support Quality of Service (QoS) towards the user. There are several ways to provide this adaptability. An ideal endsystem architecture has to be flexible enough to support all kinds of adaptation mechanisms. Within this paper we focus on the requirements that are imposed on such an endsystem architecture. Based on these we build a flexible, layered architecture that provides a QoS and mobility enabled transport interface for higher components/protocols. The component model we introduce is inherently designed to support adaptable multimedia services with built-in QoS and mobility support. We believe that such an architecture is the first step towards an integrated QoS and mobility management system that can be used for next generation multimedia applications.
