Abstract

We propose to adopt and extend the Software Defined Networking (SDN) paradigm to manage interference within dense heterogeneous deployments of wireless network cells. Specifically, we present a network architecture and the initial research results we have achieved by using software-defined physical and MAC layers to build a small scale LTE testbed. To build the testbed presented in this paper, we have used LabVIEW and the open-source NS-3 LENA LTE stack for real time emulation of dense deployments. The testbed has been designed to serve as a powerful validation and demonstration tool for algorithms pro- posed within the framework of the CROWD project for tack- ling the challenges of dense and heterogeneous wireless deployments. Our testbed specifically allows to study the performance of cross layer PHY/MAC control algorithms within a realistic cellular environment.
