Abstract

The 5 generations of networks have been evolved to satisfy the enormous growth of the user’s requirements. To achieve the user’s requirements and to assure the QoS, the traffic management (TM) of data transmission must be considered with the different network architectures. Thus, this paper presents using Software Defined Network (SDN) as well as Software Defined Mobile Network (SDMN) for (TM) purposes. Additionally, this article has analyzed the recent contributions of SDN and SDMN regarding TM within 5G environments. Moreover, we have proposed a theoretical architecture for the mobile TM systems through the SDMN controller. This architecture allows us to improve the performance enhancement through loading TM. Thus, benefits and challenging points of the proposed architecture have been presented.
