In this paper, the authors propose network architecture and a methodology to implement a network simulator and a system prototype for the software defined wireless networks with the reprogrammable capability brought by a SDWN controller. The software defined wireless network architecture oriented for the 5G network is defined with a multi-tiered cloud controller and the Openflow interface. The implementation architecture of system prototype for the software defined wireless network is based on Openflow. Finally, they evaluate and implement some new features and scenarios as applications and services with the floodlight controller.
