1. A method, comprising:
receiving performance statistics of a network device configured to provide access to network services to a plurality of client devices;
receiving a plurality of operation policies, each of the plurality of operation policies including operational parameters that define operations of the network device to provide access to the network services to the plurality of client devices;
self-configuring the network device to operate in accordance with a first operation policy from among the plurality of operation policies, wherein the first operation policy is based at least in part on the performance statistics;
monitoring an operational performance of the network device in providing access to the network services to the plurality of client devices according to the first operation policy;
determining whether a performance trigger is met based on the operational performance of the network device;
in response to determining that the performance trigger is met for a duration of a trigger validity time, reconfiguring the network device to operate according to a second operation policy from among the plurality of operation policies, wherein the reconfiguring comprises changing one or more of the operational parameters; and
broadcasting instructions to one or more neighboring network devices to change an operation policy of the one or more neighboring network devices.
