Abstract

Recent developments in wireless communication inflate a new area of research named as Wireless Body Area Networks. WBANs enhance the concept of virtual hospital with the help of cloud computing (CC) technology. Still numerous technical challenges could be found to integrate Cloud Computing (CC) and WBANs. From networking perspective, Software Defined Networking (SDN) becomes popular for its centralized nature to manage complex network infrastructure. In this paper, the concept of cloud enabled virtual hospital architecture based on software defined networking has been proposed and studied for wireless body area networks. This paper highlights a new, simplified architecture for virtual hospital concepts harnessing the benefits of software defined networking to mitigate the complexity of cloud architecture and its integration with WBAN.
