Abstract
Abstract: In Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs), providing seamless mobility and balancing load among Access Points (APs) are challenging issues due to simple signal strength based association and hand-off mechanisms employed at wireless clients. Extensions to Software Defined Networking (SDN) framework for wireless networks could help to address theses issues in an efficient and cost-effective manner with a central view of WLAN at the SDN controller. In this work, we propose a novel load-aware hand-off ...
