A new generation network is requested to accommodate an enormous number of heterogeneous nodes and a wide variety of traffic and applications. To achieve higher scalability, adaptability, and robustness than ever before, in this paper we present new network architecture composed of self-organizing entities. The architecture consists of the physical network layer, service overlay network layer, and common network layer mediating them. All network entities, i.e. nodes and networks, behave in a self-organizing manner, where the global behavior emerges through their operation on local information and direct and/or indirect mutual interaction. The center of the architecture is so-called self-organization engines, which implement nonlinear self-organizing dynamics originating in biology, physics, and mathematics. In this paper, we also show some examples of self-organization engines.
