  • Large-Scale Programing Code Dissemination for Software-Defined Wireless
    • Authors: Liu X; Liu A, Deng Q, et al.
      Pages: 1417 - 1442
      Abstract: Rapid, reliable and energy-efficient programing code dissemination is a challenging issue and offers a programmable and flexible network architecture for software-defined wireless networks (SDWNs). However, many schemes for programing codes in large-scale network incur a longer dissemination convergence time (DCT) and lower energy efficient in loss nature of wireless channels. In this paper, an adaptive broadcast dissemination (ABD) scheme is proposed to achieve low DCT and high network lifetime for SDWNs. An ABD scheme makes full use of energy left of nodes in areas far from the sink. In an ABD scheme, codes are broadcast constantly few times by nodes near the sink to save energy, and many times by nodes in areas far from the sink to rapidly spread software codes. Thus, an ABD scheme can reduce transmission delay for spreading software code while retaining network lifetime. Theoretical analysis and experimental results show that DCT in an ABD scheme is reduced by 28.12–29.86% compared with the hybrid scheme, while retaining network lifetime.

  • Software-Defined System Support for Enabling Ubiquitous Mobile Edge
    • Authors: Jararweh Y; Alsmirat M, Al-Ayyoub M, et al.
      Pages: 1443 - 1457
      Abstract: Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) enables ubiquitous and efficient cloud services to mobile users which facilitates mobile cloud computing (MCC) more easily by providing storage and processing capacity within the access range of the mobile devices. To achieve the goals of MEC, Mobile Edge (ME) servers are co-placed with the mobile network base station (at the edge of the mobile network). This eliminates the need to move computation and storage intensive tasks from a mobile device to a centralized cloud server. This in turn reduces the network communication load and delay and it also enhances the quality of service provided for the mobile end users. Applications, such as smart grid applications, content delivery networks, crowed sourcing, traffic management and E-health, will greatly benefit from such deployment. Unfortunately, a large-scale deployment of ME servers that is needed to make hundreds of applications available to millions of users, comes with great management complexity. The emerging technique of Software-Defined Systems (SDSys) abstracts the management complexities of many systems at different layers by utilizing software components. In this paper, we build a software-defined based framework that enable efficient and ubiquitous MCC services by integrating different SDSys components with the MEC system. The integrated framework is implemented and it is evaluated for its feasibility, flexibility and potential superiority.

  • How Far Can We Go' Towards Realistic Software-Defined Wireless
           Networking Experiments
    • Authors: Fontes R; Mahfoudi M, Dabbous W, et al.
      Pages: 1458 - 1471
      Abstract: Software-Defined Wireless Networking (SDWN) is an emerging approach based on decoupling radio control functions from the radio data plane through programmatic interfaces. Despite diverse ongoing efforts to realize the vision of SDWN, many questions remain open from multiple perspectives such as means to rapid prototype and experiment candidate software solutions applicable to real-world deployments. To this end, emulation of SDWN has the potential to boost research and development efforts by re-using existing protocol and application stacks while mimicking the behavior of real wireless networks. In this article, we provide an in-depth discussion on that matter focusing on the Mininet-WiFi emulator design to fill a gap in the experimental platform space. We showcase the applicability of our emulator in an SDN wireless context by illustrating the support of a number of use cases aiming to address the question on how far we can go in realistic SDWN experiments, including comparisons with the results obtained in a wireless testbed. Finally, we discuss the ability to replay packet-level and radio signal traces captured in the real testbed toward a virtual yet realistic emulation environment in support of SDWN research.

  • Ultra Dense Cells Management and Resource Allocation in Green
           Software-Defined Wireless Networks
    • Authors: Li S; Zhu G, Lin S, et al.
      Pages: 1472 - 1481
      Abstract: Ultra dense networks are a promising technique to achieve increasing 1000 times data rate requirements of the fifth generation (5G) wireless communications. However, due to the ‘tidal effect’ of mobile Internet traffic, the energy efficiency of the 5G communication system decreases dramatically, especially in off-peak hour, such as midnight. The software-defined wireless networks (SDWN) architecture provides a solution to reduce the energy consumption via cells management. To facilitate wide usage of cells management in SDWN, we consider in this paper the problem of joint ultra dense cells management and resource allocation, with the objective to minimize the network power consumption while guaranteeing the quality of service requirements of users and the coverage rate requirement. The problem is formulated as a mixed-integer nonlinear programming problem. To deal with this problem, we utilize the sparse characteristics of the beamforming vector and the method of reweighted l1 norm to approximate l0 norm. Because the coverage rate requirement constraint is still non-convex, we propose an iterative algorithm to derive the lower bound of the problem, and then propose a heuristic iterative algorithm to obtain a practical solution. Simulation results confirm that minimizing the total network power consumption results in sparse network topologies, and some of the small cells are inactivated when possible. The performance of the proposed heuristic algorithm is only increased by 13.09% compared with the lower bound, while the target signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio grow from 0 to 8 dB. And the proposed heuristic algorithm can achieve good performance compared with the conventional sparsity-based algorithm.

  • Latency-Aware Sum-Rate Maximization for 5G Software-Defined Radio Access
    • Authors: Rastegar S; Abbasfar A, Shah-Mansouri V.
      Pages: 1482 - 1497
      Abstract: In this paper, we consider the downlink power allocation problem where the objective is to maximize the sum-rate in software-defined radio access network (SDRAN). Using SDRAN, the power allocation is performed at a central controller with the channel state information (CSIs) received from the base stations (BSs). However, due to time variable nature of the fading channel and the control path delay between the controller and BSs, the central decisions at the controller might become outdated by the time each BS wants to transmit. Modeling channel fading by using a time-correlated channel model, the power allocation problem would consist of parameters which are random variables. In order to solve this problem, we use the stochastic optimization framework and propose two practical schemes. The first solution works in a completely centralized manner while the second one is performed collaboratively in the controller and BSs. We analyze these schemes for cellular networks with arbitrary number of BSs and present procedures to find the optimum power allocations. Finally, using different numerical experiments, we evaluate the performance of our proposed schemes. Significant improvement in comparison to the scenario without considering CSI variation is observed.

  • Ashman: A Bandwidth Fragmentation-Based Dynamic Flow Scheduling for Data
           Center Networks
    • Authors: Song T; Liu Y, Wang Y, et al.
      Pages: 1498 - 1509
      Abstract: Current data center (DC) topologies provide redundant paths to satisfy significant communication requirements. Researchers have proposed various approaches including static and dynamic ones to utilize path diversity more effectively. The static methods adopt hash-based way to distribute flows onto multiple paths randomly, while the dynamic ones relying on centralized controller place flows on candidate paths. Unfortunately, the existing flow-scheduling policies have ignored and even resulted in network bandwidth fragmentation which adversely slows down transmission rate of new flows or affects chances of accepting new flow requests, especially when the granularity of flows is larger. This phenomenon is considered as a bottleneck for higher utilization of bandwidth resource in DCs. In this paper, we are the first to identify and define network bandwidth fragmentation within DC. Accordingly, we present Ashman, a flow-based dynamic scheduling approach to reduce bandwidth fragmentation by proactively considering potential large flows. This policy dynamically schedules the existing large flows to resolve congestions and maximize bandwidth utilization and network throughput. We describe our design and implementation in OpenFlow framework with unmodified hosts. Our evaluation on the software-defined networking simulator called Mininet demonstrates that Ashman effectively reduces bandwidth fragmentation, and thereby achieves higher network bandwidth utilization and the overall throughput of DC.

  • On Software-Defined Wireless Network (SDWN) Network Virtualization:
           Challenges and Open Issues
    • Authors: Abdelaziz A; Tan Fong A, Gani A, et al.
      Pages: 1510 - 1519
      Abstract: Software-defined networking (SDN) is new network architecture that emerges as to implement network virtualization (NV) with vast features, especially when it is applied it in multi-tenant scenarios. The rapid growth of wireless network applications and services, let to adopt NVs into software-defined wireless network (SDWN). This is because wireless networks require specific features that can be hindered of implementing NVs such as updated location information, dynamic channel configuration, and rapid client re-association. This paper presents state-of-the-art NV methods for SDWN with the aim of highlighting issues and challenges of applying NVs techniques of SDN into SDWN. We discuss three SDN techniques that facilitate NV in the cloud, namely proxy-based virtualization, layer two prefixes-based virtualizations and programing language-based virtualization. Moreover, the paper points out the possibility of providing effective VNs in the SDWN architecture. We also taxonomies the SDWN proposed virtualization methods based on hypervisor controller in the different networks. Finally, the potential requirements and challenges and open issues of SDWN NVs are also identified and presented as the future directions in SDWN research.

  • Software-Defined Wireless Mesh Networking: Current Status and Challenges
    • Authors: Rademacher M; Jonas K, Siebertz F, et al.
      Pages: 1520 - 1535
      Abstract: The combination of Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Wireless Mesh Network (WMN) is challenging due to the different natures of both concepts. SDN describes networks with homogeneous, static and centralized controlled topologies. In contrast, a WMN is characterized by a dynamic and distributed network control, and adds new challenges with respect to time-critical operation. However, SDN and WMN are both associated with decreasing the operational costs for communication networks which is especially beneficial for internet provisioning in rural areas. This work surveys the current status for Software-Defined Wireless Mesh Networking. Besides a general overview in the domain of wireless SDN, this work focuses especially on different identified aspects: representing and controlling wireless interfaces, control-plane connection and topology discovery, modulation and coding, routing and load-balancing and client handling. A complete overview of surveyed solutions, open issues and new research directions is provided with regard to each aspect.

  • Coverage Hole Bypassing in Wireless Sensor Networks
    • Authors: Wan S; Zhang Y.
      Pages: 1536 - 1544
      Abstract: Wireless sensor networks deployment and operation are most likely to take place under hazardous conditions. One extreme scenario is the deployment of a wireless sensor network in a mountainous and forested region in which a fire has ignited, for the purpose of localizing and/or tracking, in real time, its spread. Some methods developed in this paper are expected to provide superior performances under these conditions. Existing fires in the deployment region will also affect the nodes’ coverage because the nodes that will fall in the middle of the fire will likely cease to operate. In our work, we develop a coverage hole bypassing algorithm for storing and maintaining holes-information in the network based on which a boundary node can provide the communication path which is more efficient to try to bypass a hole. Simulation results are presented to illustrate the proposed method and evaluate its run-time and message count per node. We show that these routing can be used in many applications.
