We recently attended the IEEE Wireless Communications and Networking Conference (WCNC) where we presented our paper: “Fine-Grained Radio Resource Management to Control Interference in Dense Wi-Fi Networks” based on the work in WP4. The conference was held in San Francisco, CA, USA, from 19th to 22nd March 2017.
This paper proposes a fine-grained Radio Resource Management (RRM) algorithm based on a per-flow approach that takes into account the application flow Quality of Service (QoS) requirements, as well as the effect of the radio configuration in the Wi-Fi APs, on the rest of the network. This algorithm is included 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 related to the use of SDN and the analytical model behind the algorithm proposed in the paper.
