In-band network monitoring technique to support SDN-based wireless networks

Abstract
Most industrial applications demand determinism in terms of latency, reliability, and throughput. This goes hand in hand with the increased complexity of real-time network programability possibilities. To ensure network performance low-overhead, high-granularity, and timely network verification techniques need to be deployed. The first cornerstone of network verification ability is to enable end-to-end network monitoring, including end devices too. To achieve this, this article shows a novel and low overhead in-band network telemetry and monitoring technique for wireless networks focusing on IEEE 802.11 networks. A design of in-band network telemetry enabled node architecture is proposed and its proof of concept implementation is realized. The PoC realization is used to monitor a real-life SDN-based wireless network, enabling on-the-fly (re)configuration capabilities based on monitoring data. In addition, the proposed monitoring technique is validated in terms of monitoring accuracy, monitoring overhead, and network (re)configuration accuracy. It is shown that the proposed in-band monitoring technique has 6 times lower overhead than other active monitoring techniques on a single-hop link. Besides this, it is demonstrated that (re)configuration decisions taken based on monitored data fulfill targeted application requirements, validating the suitability of the proposed monitoring technique.
