Abstract

This paper provides a detailed tutorial to develop a sandbox to emulate coexistence scenarios for road and railway services in terms of sharing telecommunication infrastructure using software-defined network (SDN) capabilities. This paper provides detailed instructions for the creation of network topology using Mininet–WiFi that can mimic real-life coexistence scenarios between railways and roads. The network elements are programmed and controlled by the ONOS SDN controller. The developed SDN application can differentiate the data traffic from railways and roads. Data traffic differentiation is carried out using a VLAN tagging mechanism. Further, it also provides comprehensive information about the different tools that are used to generate the data traffic that can emulate messaging, video streaming, and critical data transmission of railway and road
domains. It also provides the steps to use SUMO to represent the selected coexistence scenarios in a graphical way
