Abstract

The rapid growth of smart devices demands an enhanced throughput for network connection sustainability during mobility. However, traditional wireless network architecture suffers from mobility management issues. In order to resolve the traditional mobility management issues, we propose a novel architecture for future wireless access network based on software-defined network (SDN) by using the advantage of network function virtualization (NFV). In this paper, network selection approach (NSA) has been introduced for mobility management that comprises of acquiring the information of the underlying networking devices through the OpenFlow controller, percepts the current network behavior and later the selection of an appropriate action or network. Furthermore, mobility-related scenarios and use cases to analyze the implementation aspects of the proposed architecture are provided. The simulation results confirm that the proposed scenarios have obtained a seamless mobility with enhanced throughput at minimum packet loss as compared to the existing IEEE 802.11 wireless network.
