The What to do With the Wi-Fi Wild West H2020 project (Wi-5) combines research and innovation to propose an architecture based on an integrated and coordinated set of smart Wi-Fi networking solutions. The resulting system will be able to efficiently reduce interference between neighbouring Access Points (APs) and provide optimised connectivity for new and emerging services. The project approach is expected to develop and incorporate a variety of different solutions, which will be made available through academic publications, in addition to other dissemination channels. The present document includes the specification of the first version of the Cooperative AP Functionalities, which are being defined within Work Package (WP) 4 of the Wi-5 project. In this deliverable after the Executive Summary and the literature review, the first version of the Cooperative Access Point Solutions are illustrated. In particular, a section with a general cooperative framework that jointly includes functionalities for an optimized AP channel assignment, Radio Resource Management (RRM) and smart AP allocation is presented. The optimized APs channel assignment enables an important improvement of the network performance in terms of SINR. Furthermore, the results analysed in this deliverable validate the flexibility and practicality of the proposed algorithm in different scenarios. The smart AP allocation solution introduces the innovative Fittingness Factor (FF) concept that efficiently matches the suitability of the available spectrum resource to the application requirements. Moreover, the basis required for a seamless mobility functionality in the framework is also included in the section. Next, a first assessment of the algorithms proposed in this deliverable is presented through the analysis of several performance results in a simulated environment. In detail, the AP channel assignment and the smart AP allocation algorithms are assessed and compared against other strategies found in the literature. Finally, a set of monitoring procedures to be conducted on the Wi-5 APs and on the Wi-5 controller are presented. These procedures will allow the correct deployment of the cooperative APs functionalities proposed in this deliverable. After summarising the main conclusions, the document ends with future work.
