11n radio and one or two Ethernet interfaces. All the wireless connections are unencrypted and use 5 GHz frequency band with 40 MHz channel width and 2 × 2 MIMO. Also, the 4-address frame format is used on WiFi links between the backhaul nodes to enable transparent bridging [14]. Since OpenFlow has no support for setting up the wireless links, they are manually configured. The wireless point-to-point links between the mesh nodes offer a theoretical maximum bandwidth of 300 Mbps. The wired Ethernet uses 100 Mbps full-duplex connections.

This paper presents a practical solution towards bringing SDN concept into wireless networks based on low-cost WiFi technology and long-distance links. It describes some design ideas and concepts of an on-going work to enhance a wireless mesh testbed [2] with SDN capabilities. Further, it discusses some challenges and required functionality. The rest of this paper is organised as follows. Section 2 presents related work in SDN applied to wireless networks. Section 3 introduces the background and components used in this work.
