The intensive network technology that is one of the key technologies of 5G is the main means to solve the explosive growth of data traffic demands in the future. However, with the implementation of network-inte-nsive deployments, serious interference problems are generated. The software-defined network (SDN) allows the separation of the control plane from forward plane, which provides the flexibility of dynamic network programming. Combining SDN with 5G is an effective method to copy with the interference management. This paper proposes an SDN-based mobile wireless network architecture to solve the problem of interference coordination in mobile wireless networks. Through the advantages of the SDN controller, the underlying wireless network topology information is centralized to the control layer that is running the optimization algorithm of resource allocation, which solves the problem of interference coordination. We introduces an Integer Programming to sovle the problem of formulation. A Tabu heuristic algorithm is used to solve the problem of interference coordination. The experimental results show that compared with the algorithm of non interference coordination, the proposed algorithm evidently reduces the interference value of the whole network.
