This paper proposes an hybrid approach composed by Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) to boost the upload speed of mobile users in low-bandwidth environments through a next generation Mobile Collaborative Community (MCC). The core idea is to use a high-bandwidth local communication system, like IEEE 802.11 (WiFi), in order to distribute data efficiently through mobile hosts; then, the distributed data may be sent from each mobile node to the original destination through their low-bandwidth mobile interface for wide area network communication.

Abstract

This paper proposes an hybrid approach composed by Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) to boost the upload speed of mobile users in low-bandwidth environments through a next generation Mobile Collaborative Community (MCC). The core idea is to use a high-bandwidth local communication system, like IEEE 802.11 (WiFi), in order to distribute data efficiently through mobile hosts; then, the distributed data may be sent from each mobile node to the original destination through their low-bandwidth mobile interface for wide area network communication. With our solution some drawbacks of MCC are faced. With the use of SDN we defined a flexible and easy-to-configure MCC system which operates in a transparent way for the end hosts. At the same time, the use of CPS creates a feedback for the system regarding the hosts channel status; this way the system is able to fully exploit the MCC potential by increasing the upload speed for both congested and non-congested scenarios.We demonstrate the efficiency of our solution through experimental results obtained using the Mininet network emulator where POX and a Pyretic controller serve as a dynamic data repartition engine.
