In spite of the enormous popularity of Wi-Fienabled devices, the utilization of Wi-Fi radio resources (e.g. RF spectrum and transmission power levels) at Access Points (APs) is degraded in current decentralized Radio Resource Management (RRM) schemes. Most state of the art central control solutions apply configurations in which the network-wide impacts of the involved parameters and their mutual relationships are ignored. In this paper, we propose an algorithm for jointly adjusting the transmission power levels and optimizing the RF channel assignment of APs by taking into account the flows’ required qualities while minimizing their interference impacts throughout the network. The proposed solution is tailored for an operatoragnostic and Software Defined Wireless Networking (SDWN)- based centralised RRM in dense Wi-Fi networks. Our extensive simulation results validate the performance improvement of the proposed algorithm compared to the main state of the art alternative by showing more than 25% higher spectrum efficiency, satisfying the users’ demands and further mitigating the networkwide interference through a flow-based and quality-oriented power level adjustment.
