The growing popularity of smart phones and tablet computers places an
increasing strain on wireless networks. Yet, despite tremendous innovation in
mobile applications, the cellular network infrastructure is remarkably
brittle. Software defined networking (SDN) is defined as a control
framework that supports the programmability of network functions and
protocols by decoupling the data plane and the control plane, which are
currently integrated vertically in most network equipment. The SDN
technology allows network operators to manipulate logical map of the
network and create multiple co-existing network slices independent of the
underlying transportation technology and network protocols. Furthermore,
the separation of control plane and data plane makes the SDN a suitable
candidate for end-to-end network service delivery. Enabling SDN at the
wireless network can potentially simplify network management, while
enabling new services. However, supporting many subscribers, frequent
mobility, fine-grained measurement and control, and real-time adaptation
introduces scalability challenges that should be addressed by future SDN

SDN for future wireless communication systems will introduce new services,
inter-operate with other wireless network technologies and other operator
networks. The main objective of this workshop is to explore various design
considerations and challenges for SDN focusing on wireless technologies and
application scenarios. The workshop will provide a platform for
contributors and participants, from both industry and academia, to share
their views and thoughts on different aspects of SDN for future wireless

Accepted papers will be published in the IEEE IWCMC 2014 proceedings and
will be included in the IEEE digital library (IEEE Xplore).

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

   - ·        Architecture of SDN for future wireless networks, including
   fundamental concept, control plane and date plane.

   - ·        Development of SDN for future wireless networks, including
   programming languages and models, trouble shooting tools, performance
   measurements, and simulator.

   - ·        Use cases of SDN in future wireless networks, including
   network management, policy control and charging, security and privacy, QoS
   control and mobility management, traffic engineering, and virtual cellular
   operator management.

   - ·        Deployment of SDN in future wireless networks,
   including 5G mobile network, wireless sensor network, wireless mesh network
   and wireless heterogeneous network.

   - ·        Incremental deployment of SDN to existing wireless networks.

   - ·        SDN-enabled centralized control for efficient resource
   allocation and inter-cell interference management.

   - ·        Software-defined converged wireless networks, potentially of
   multi-technologyheterogeneous convergence, such as broadcasting,
   cellular, wireless sensor networks, WiFi, etc.

   - ·        Hybrid SDN approaches, i.e., integration with other control
   planes such as cloud virtual machine(VM) control, big data control, etc.

   - ·        Progress in standardization (including ITU, 3GPP, ETSI, ONF
   and etc.), experiments and field trials of wireless SDN and network
   function virtualization techniques, including northbound interface,
   southbound interface, east-west interface, evolved packet core (EPC)
   virtualization, baseband virtualization, and cloud radio access network

   - ·        Techno-economic analysis and market expectations of wireless
   SDN including operators’ view.
