Description

As a baby step for achieving the goal of Unified management of wired and wireless networks using right abstractions ,we would like to propose the implementation of "Control And Provisioning of Wireless Access Points (CAPWAP) Protocol" as one of the south bound interface.

  • As an administrator I would like provide service discovering capabilities for my access points. I would like to do this using CAPWAP open standard.
  • As an administrator I would like to authorize and authenticate my access points and allow them to join to my administrative domain. I would like to do this using CAPWAP open standard.
  • As an administrator I would like to configure and apply policy to the access points in my administrative domain . I would like to do this using CAPWAP open standard.

Standards to be supported

Scope

  • South Bound MD-SAL Plugin for CAPWAP
  • CAPWAP Protocol library ( CAPWAP RFC 5415)
  • CAPWAP 802.11 bindings" ( CAPWAP RFC 5416)
  • "Unified test Application for CAPWAP and the 802.11 bindings
  • Local Mac with local bridged- In the initial version Local Map Support will be provided . There will not be split mac support in the initial version.


  ...........The Local MAC mode of operation allows for the data frames to be
  either locally bridged or tunneled as 802.3 frames. ...................
  .........................When Local Bridging is used, the WTP does not tunnel user
  traffic to the AC; all user traffic is locally bridged.  ..................

Software Components

  • Connection Handler
     Handles UDP & DTLS connections
  • CAPWAP Protocol Library
    Implements CAPWAP Protocol
  • MD-SAL CAPWAP Plugin
    South bound ODL plugin
  • Inventory Manager
    Database for Access Points
  • North Bound Sample application
    Example application which could demonstrate  e2e network abstraction
