As we see a growing variety of network and application behaviors, it becomes more important that protocols adapt to their surroundings. Building adaptive protocols is complicated, and therefore we have considered building hybrid protocols that switch between specialized protocols. In this paper, we show for which communication properties this is a correct solution, and classify these using a new concept called meta-properties. We also show how well these switches perform.
