In order to provide quality of service (QoS) guarantees to the campus WLAN users, typical campus WLAN systems need to provide a variety of services in a scalable manager. However, the existing campus WLAN solutions are proprietary, closed-source and expensive, which limits the network's flexibility and expansibility. In this paper, a Software Defined(More)
Because of the limited resources on radio access channels of third generation partnership projection (3GPP) network, one of the most challenging tasks posted by 3GPP cellular-based machine type communications (MTC) is congestion due to massive requests for connection to radio access network (RAN). In this paper, an overload control algorithm in 3GPP RAN is(More)
Due to the growing demands of various mobile services and large data traffic in wireless networks, WLAN has been deemed as an important complementary technology for offloading LTE network data. However, currently, WLAN and LTE networks are usually deployed independently, many important coordination and joint optimization can't be achieved, which may lead to(More)
