Anyfi.net is a Software-Defined Wireless Networking (SDWN) forwarding data plane for IEEE 802.11. The software consists of two user space daemons; the radio daemon anyfid and the tunnel termination daemon myfid. They communicate with each other and with an SDWN controller [1] on UDP/IP, and in concert they create seamless carrier Wi-Fi user experiences.

Anyfi.net software needs a low-level interface to the Wi-Fi driver, in order to send and receive raw IEEE 802.11 frames. This has previously required some minor patches to the Linux kernel. These were however merged in Linux 3.12 (compat-wireless 2013-11-05). We have therefore upgraded OpenWrt to a recent snapshot on the Attitude Adjustment branch which includes these changes.

For a walk-through of the integration please see http://anyfi.net/integration.

Anyfi.net
Integration of Anyfi.net software.
Anyfi.net is a Software-Defined Wireless Networking (SDWN) forwarding data plane
implementation for IEEE 802.11. See http://anyfi.net for more information.
Anyfi.net
Configuration interface for Anyfi.net on residential gateways.
To make configuration as simple as possible for the end-subscriber there is only
a single checkbox controlling the 'anyfi_disabled' property on both the
wifi-device and on the wifi-iface. This allows the service provider to set the
controller, e.g. using TR-069 or similar, and the end-subscriber to "opt-out".

Also note that the "Anyfi.net" brand is not visible to the end-subscriber;
Internet service providers typically want to deploy Anyfi.net technology under
their own brands.

See http://anyfi.net/documentation#s_rg for more information.
Anyfi.net
Configuration interface for Anyfi.net on consumer Wi-Fi routers.
For consumer Wi-Fi routers we recommend a complete configuration interface
where the end-user can set the controller and how much bandwidth they want
to share with guests.

See http://anyfi.net/documentation#s_router for more information.
Anyfi.net
Configuration interface for Anyfi.net on access points.
Public and corporate access points are typically configured by professionals.
We therefore recommend a complete configuration interface where the
administrator can set the controller and how much bandwidth they want to
allocate for the SDWN radio function.

See http://anyfi.net/documentation#s_ap for more information.
