    The wireless access networks have witnessed an explosive growth in home and enterprise applications. However, to meet the tough performance requirements, such as seamless handover, higher throughput, and agile programing, there still exists many challenges in WiFi networks. In this paper, we propose a novel MP-SDWN (multipath-supported Software Defined Wireless Network), to provide mobility handover, throughput enhancement, and flow-level transmission control as well as programmable system control interfaces. Furthermore, the effectiveness and efficiency of MP-SDWN is evaluated on an experimental prototype.
