Software-defined Wireless Sensor Network: WSN Virtualization and Network Re-orchestration

Indrajit Acharyya, Adnan Al-Anbuky

Abstract

Flexible reorganization of complex IoT (Internet-of-Things)-based sensor networks is crucial for the alignment of the sensor network’s operational dynamics with that of the monitored external phenomenon. Software-Defined Networking (SDN), when supported by Cloud-level Network Virtualization (NV), offers a prospective avenue for a flexible sensor network that can re-orchestrate as the monitored process demands. In order to allow for seamless softwarization of the sensor network functional entities, this paper promotes function modularization and establishment of both virtual repositories of reusable software modules as well as requisite operational software. An architectural solution that is aligned with Industry 4.0’s ideology is presented in this work. This along with the software-defined resources is deemed as a viable solution to re-orchestrate the physical sensor network. By means of example simulation scenarios, this paper highlights the utility of NV for flexible soft trialling of sensor network topological re-orchestration and highlighting the possible network downtime associated with that operation. The outcome offers potential for the utilization of the virtual environment and the dynamics retained within it to offer ground for pre-planning for best possible re-orchestration scenario that comply with adaptive interaction with the dynamics of the physical environment.
