The explosive growth of mobile data traffic and the shortage of the available spectral resources have created new challenges for future cellular networks. In particular, resource management in heterogeneous network environment has become a critical issue. In this paper, they propose Software-Defined Networking (SDN)-based resource management algorithms for future cellular network. Specifically, in this paper, they have a threefold objective: alleviate spectrum shortage concerns by efficiently offloading traffic over the Wi-Fi network, address network congestion by optimally balancing loads across multiple cells and achieve the aforementioned objectives while taking network conditions and the end user Quality-of-Service (QoS) requirements into consideration
