Abstract
To deliver on the vision of network slicing, future 5G networks will have to provide virtualization and isolation for a variety of Radio Access Network (RAN) technologies. In this paper we study how to implement RAN slicing in Wi-Fi networks. In particular, we present a scheduling algorithm that allocates airtime through a set of virtual Wi-Fi interfaces executing on the same or different physical radios, in order to fulfill each tenant’s Service Level Agreement. We demonstrate a practical implementation of our scheduler on Linux systems based on the mac80211 driver that contrary to other existing solutions is independent from underlying hardware drivers.
