Emulating Software Defined Wireless Networks (2015 – )Mininet-WiFi

Mininet-WiFi is an open source platform to emulate wireless OpenFlow/SDN scenarios allowing high-fidelity experiments that replicate real networking environments. Mininet-WiFi augments the well-known Mininet emulator with virtual wireless stations and access points while keeping the original SDN capabilities and the lightweight virtualization software architecture.
