Abstract
Traditional cellular networks are forced to remain active regardless of the actual amount of traffic that is currently produced/requested, with a clear waste of energy. Two-layer mobile networks with separated signalling and data layers have been recently proposed for energy savings in future implementations. These networks are able to switch off unneeded data cells completely while maintaining full coverage with their signalling cells, thus saving energy. In this demonstration, we showcase a testbed that uses Wi-Fi access points to emulate small cells of the data layer and a publicly available cellular connection as the signalling layer. We use off-the-shelf Android smartphones with an ad-hoc networking management module and a MultiPath TCP-enabled kernel to manage the Wi-Fi and cellular interfaces simultaneously. The testbed is used to demonstrate the general feasibility of this layered architecture and to facilitate experiments with network-wide resource optimization.
