In this paper, a new concept of a flexible network is formalized as a foundation of the next generation distributed systems. Considering the requisite properties of the flexible networks, we proposed an architecture of the flexible network called agent-oriented flexible information network (AFIN) model. The model is based on the multi-agent paradigm. Furthermore, we focussed on communication network which is a core component of the flexible information network. We proposed an agent-oriented flexible communication network (AFCN) model and demonstrate with an example the advantages of the proposed architecture of flexible network.
