LoxiGen is a tool by the Floodlight project to generate OpenFlow libraries for several programming languages including Java and C. The goal of this project is to extend LoxiGen to include messages for controlling wireless switches using OpenFlow. It will include the necessary extensions to LoxiGen as well as a proof-of-concept implementation of the control channel. This encompasses an application for the ONOS SDN controller and an agent for the LEDE router operating system.

SDN-enabled wireless switches offer comfortable centralized management of larger deployments and may provide the basis for more complex use-cases in the future such as network slicing and seamless mobility.
