Purpose: With rapid advances in wireless portable devices, ubiquitous computing seems becoming a reality everyday. The paper aims to explore the possibility of offering real-time content adaptation on set of data streams using the active pervasive network infrastructure. Design/methodology/approach: With different relative importance among the data sets, traffic control and discrimination with different operations on content adaptation are examined. Piggyback extension to users' preferences messages is proposed to smoothly enhance the active pervasive network infrastructure design. Findings: Content adaptation is achieved transparently to both clients and server systems. Real-time delivery services overcome stochastic network situations and abruptly changing bottleneck link bandwidth problem while retaining information integrity and preserving critical data at the best of the limit of an environment. Originality/value: The paper explores real-time content adaptation on data streams using the active pervasive network infrastructure.
