Network Store: Exploring Slicing in Future 5G Networks
TLDR
In this paper, we provide a revolutionary vision of 5G networks, in which SDN technologies are used for the programmability of the wireless network, and where a NFV-ready network store is provided to Mobile Network Operators (MNO), Enterprises, and Over-The-Top (OTT) third parties. Expand

Binary waypoint geographical routing in wireless mesh networks
TLDR
We propose Binary Waypoint Routing, a novel geographical routing protocol for wireless mesh networks that learns and maintains source routes to a small number of nodes called binary waypoints that are placed in subspaces constructed as a result of binary space partitioning. Expand
