We recently attended the IEEE Conference on Standards for Communications & Networking (CSCN) where we presented our paper: “A Centralised Wi-Fi Management Framework for D2D Communications in Dense Wi-Fi Networks” based on the work in WP4. The conference was held in Berlin, Germany, from 31st October to 2nd November 2016.
This paper proposes the inclusion of the management of Device-to-Device (D2D) connections in the SDN-based controller designed and simulated in the context of WP4. The presentation of the paper was a great success and the audience showed great interest in the work which generated several questions. We had a discussion about some implementation details and the analytical model behind the algorithm proposed in the paper.
