This deliverable presents the specification of the final version of the Cooperative AP Functionalities that have been designed in the context of Work Package (WP) 4 of the Wi-5 project. In detail, we present a general cooperative framework that includes functionalities for a Radio Resource Management (RRM) algorithm, which provides channel assignment and transmit power adjustment strategies, an AP selection policy, which also provides horizontal handover, and a Radio Access Technology (RAT) selection solution for vertical handover. The RRM algorithm achieves an important improvement for network performance in terms of several parameters through the channel assignment approach and the transmit power adjustment. The AP selection solution extends the approach presented in deliverables D4.1 and D4.2 and is based on a centralised potential game, which optimises the distribution of the so-called Fittingness Factor (FF) parameter among the Wi-Fi users. Such a parameter efficiently matches the suitability of the available spectrum resource to the users’ application requirements. Moreover, the RAT selection solution extends the AP selection algorithm towards vertical handover functionality including 3G/4G networks. The assessment of the newest algorithms developed in the context of WP4 is illustrated in this deliverable through the analysis of several performance results in a simulated environment against other strategies found in the literature. Finally, the set of smart AP functionalities developed in the context of WP3, implemented on the Wi5 APs and on the Wi-5 controller, and their use in the proposed algorithms are illustrated. Specifically, this deliverable describes how these functionalities can enable the correct deployment of the proposed cooperative AP solutions in realistic scenarios. Therefore, the main novel contributions of this deliverable are i) the strengthening of the AP selection algorithm, ii) the design and assessment of a new algorithm for vertical handover and iii) the presentation of the finalised integration of the cooperative AP functionalities of the Wi-5 system.
