A Software Defined Networking Approach for Guaranteeing Delay in Wi-Fi Networks

Recently, low latency has become one of the most critical requirements in Wi-Fi networks (e.g., for Internet access). Many factors and events such as bufferbloat, which unexpectedly happen, can affect the delay of Wi-Fi networks. Hence, the delay requirement leads to the essential of a management mechanism, which can 1) correctly detect negative behavior in latency; 2) and adjust network settings adaptively. In this paper, we introduce a solution for the two mentioned issues, which uses the emerging Software Defined Networking (SDN) technology. Our SDN-based method can guarantee a predetermined value of delay in the Wi-Fi network by taking advantage of SDN. More specifics, we correctly monitor the delay fluctuation in Wi-Fi networks on an SDN controller. We then deploy a task of queue adjustment when the delay value exceeds the predetermined one. We have developed and evaluated our method using the mininet-wifi emulator and POX controller. The results show that we can maintain the guaranteed delay level for packet transmissions without significant effects on network performance.
The diverse landscape of network models, including Software-Defined Networking (SDN), Cloud Computing (C2), and Internet of Things (IoT), is evolving to meet the demands of flexibility and performance. However, these environments face numerous security challenges due to cyber-attack complexity. Traditional defense mechanisms are no longer effective against modern attacks. Therefore,...
As data driven-based Windows malware detectors become increasingly prevalent, the need for robust evaluation and enhancement of adversarial malware generation techniques also becomes imperative, as malicious actors will adapt and enhance their malware to evade detection. There are numerous works that introduce new techniques or enhancements for adversarial malware. One...
