In this paper, a wireless test bed for demonstrating intelligent management in virtualized network infrastructure is presented. To instantiate virtual networks on demand including Network Function Virtualization (NFV) OpenStack is applied. In addition, OpenAirInterface (OAI) is integrated into the test bed to support realistic wireless scenarios. Two virtual network environments, that demonstrate self-optimization to improve end-to-end Quality-of-Experience (QoE) and self-protection against distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack, are described.
