Experiments with OpenFlow and IEEE802.11 Point-to-Point Links in a WMN

  • SDN and WMN evolved to be sophisticated technologies used in a variety of applications. However, a combined approach called wmSDN has not been widely addressed in the research community. Our idea in this field consists of WiFi-based point-to-point links managed by the OpenFlow protocol. We investigate two different issues regarding this idea. First, which WiFi operational mode is suitable in an OpenFlow managed broadcast domain? Second, does the performance decrease compared with other routing or switching principles? Therefore, we set up a real-world testbed and a suitable simulation environment. Unlike previous work, we show that it is possible to use WiFi links without conducting MAC address rewriting at each hop by utilizing the 4-address-mode.
