This book project will present the concept of a Software Defined Mobile Network (SDMN) which would change the network architecture of the current LTE (3GPP) networks. SDN will also open up new opportunities for traffic, resource and mobility management, as well as impose new challenges on network security. It is also foreseen that the investments in the network and operational costs would change. Therefore, this book project will address these main affecting areas such as traffic, resource and mobility management, virtualized traffics transportation, network management, network security and techno economic concepts. Moreover, the complete introduction to SDN and SDMN concepts will be included in the introduction section of the book.

In a nutshell, this book project will provide an insight into the feasibility and opportunities of SDMN concept, as well as evaluate the limits of performance and scalability of the new technologies applied on mobile broadband networks.

Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

Software Defined Networking (SDN) Concepts
o Evolution of SDN
o History of SDN
o SDN Controllers, Network Programmability
o SDN Working Groups/ Research Communities
o SDN Applications
