Abstract

This work presents the integration of the IEEE 802.21 framework with the Entity Title Architecture (ETArch), a clean slate approach that is deployed atop OpenFlow. In the resultant architecture, network mobility is provided within the Workspace, a logical channel able to gather multiple communicating participants. This paper describes the main architecture components and the signaling approach deployed in a handover scenario by providing the details the integration between 802.21, OpenFlow and Entity Title Control protocols.
