The H2020 What to do With the Wi-Fi Wild West (Wi-5) project combines research and innovation to propose a Software Defined Networking (SDN) architecture based on an integrated and coordinated set of smart Wi-Fi networking solutions. In this document, we present the integration methodologies and provide the integration test results of the developed functionalities of Wi-5. The integration of the functionalities is being developed within Work Package 5. First, the smart and cooperative solutions provided by the SDN based Wi-5 architecture will be briefly described. Next, we will define and explain the modular approach to be applied in Wi-5 APs and the Wi-5 controller. According to this approach, we will describe the functionalities of both the Wi-5 APs that are modelled as a combination of the monitoring and network configuration modules, and the Wi-5 controller which is composed of the monitoring, decision, and network configuration modules. Following this, we will define and explain the Wi-5 integration strategy that was utilized to integrate the smart and cooperative functionalities in terms of assembly of the modules utilized to model the Wi-5 AP and the Wi-5 controller. The integration approach and steps of the proposed functionalities are then given and the limitations that have been faced during the integration progress of the functionalities are clearly explained in each subsection. Moreover, the design criteria and possible evaluation approaches of such nonintegrated functionalities are explicitly provided. During the integration process, coordinated work between WP3 and WP4 was carried out and, after the feedback was shared for WP5-WP3 and WP5WP4, some novel innovations and contributions are introduced. The online integration approach for the channel assignment algorithm of the radio resource management solution is proposed, and integrated as a product of this mutual feedback. Also, the proactive handover application for seamless handover functionality is another product of this collaboration. After the integration process, the test definitions and evaluation results of the integrated functionalities are presented. Also, the available test metrics and network deployments for each of the functionality tests are provided. The test results prove that the proposed functionalities perform well in meeting the design objectives. We observe that the Wi-5 solutions give the expected performance gains in most of the conducted test cases.
