    • Abstract

       

      Many modern-day applications require seamless connectivity to provide a good quality experience to mobile users. Thus, mobility management mechanism becomes a crucial aspect of all the wireless technologies used to connect to the Internet. In this letter, we present the testbed implementation details of aNetwork Address Translation (NAT)-based, client-unaware, seamless handover mechanism for a Software- Defined Enterprise WLAN framework. The results from the testbed implementation corroborate that the handover mechanism can provide uninterrupted connectivity during a handover process.
