Software Defined Wireless Networks (SDWN)

The growing popularity of smart phones, tablet computers and cloud services
places an increasing demand for dynamic services from wireless networks.
This demand generates new requirements for the network architecture, such
as flexibility in management and configuration, adaptability and vendor-
independence. To meet these requirements, software defined wireless network
(SDWN) is proposed as a cost-effective solution. SDWN decouples the data
plane and the control plane, enabling the direct programmability of network
control and the abstraction of the underlying infrastructure from the
wireless applications. With SDWN, we can create a service delivery platform
that is adaptable to users' varying demands. However, issues such as
supporting a large number of subscribers, frequent mobility, fine-grained
measurement and control, and real-time adaptation need to be addressed by
future SDWN architectures.

To reflect recent research advances on SDWN, this feature topic calls for
original manuscripts with contributions in, but not limited to, the
following topics:

- Architecture of SDWN for future wireless networks
- Development of SDWN for future wireless networks, including programming
languages and models, trouble shooting tools, performance measurements,
and simulators
- Use cases of SDWN in future wireless networks, including spectrum
management, policy control and charging, security and privacy, QoS control
and mobility management, virtual cellular operator management, and
interference management
- Deployment of SDWN in future wireless networks and incremental deployment
to existing wireless networks SDWN network function virtualization
techniques, including evolved packet core (EPC) virtualization, baseband
virtualization, and cloud radio access networks
- Hybrid SDWN approaches, i.e., integration with other control planes such
as cloud virtual machine (VM) control, big data control, etc.
- Progresses in standardization, experiments and field trials of SDWN
- Techno-economic analysis and market expectations of SDWN from the
operators' perspective

Articles should be tutorial in nature and written in a style comprehensible
to readers outside the specialty of the article. Authors must follow IEEE
Communications Magazine's guidelines for preparation of the manuscript.
Complete guidelines for prospective authors are found at:

It is important to note that IEEE Communications Magazine strongly limits
mathematical content, and the number of figures and tables. Paper length
should not exceed 4,500 words. All manuscripts to be considered for
publication must be submitted through the IEEE Manuscript Central (made with
permission of the editor. All articles to be considered for publication must
be submitted through the IEEE Manuscript Central by the deadline
