The Future Internet will provide seamless connectivity via heterogeneous networks. The Y-Comm Architecture is a reference model that has been developed to build future mobile systems for heterogeneous environments. However, the emergence of Software Defined Networking and Network Functional Virtualization will allow the implementation of advanced mobile architectures such as Y-Comm to be prototyped and explored in more detail. This paper proposes an implementation model for the Y-Comm architecture based on these mechanisms. A key component is the design of the Core Endpoint which connects various peripheral wireless networks to the core network. This paper also proposes the development of a Network Management Control Protocol which allows the management routines running in the Cloud to control the underlying networking infrastructure. The system being proposed is flexible and modular and will allow current and future wireless technologies to be seamlessly integrated into the overall system.
