SoftAir: Software-Defined Networking and Network Function Virtualization Solutions for 5G Cellular Systems


SoftAir is a new wireless software-defined architecture with network function virtualization(NFV) solutions for 5G cellular systems.The concept of SDN hasbeen proposed to efficiently create centralized network abstraction with the provisioning of programmability over the entire network. Moreover, the complementary conceptof NFV has been further proposed to effectively separate the abstraction of functionalities from the hardware, such as decoupling the data forwarding plane from the control plane.These two concepts bring the SoftAir architecture that provides cellular networks with the needed flexibility to evolve and adapt according to the ever-changing network context.
