We propose to redesign SDN control in IoT last-miles so as to extend the capability from edge routers to devices (emph{end-node things enabled with SDN capabilities}). Our approach put forward existing and new challenges that are impossible to be resolved using the seminal approaches directly. The main challenges we identify are: scalability of sensor nodes/things, maintaining the security of the system, and fulfilling the Quality of Service (QoS) requirement of all IoT applications. Firstly, we elaborate and discuss the aforementioned critical and fundamental challenges that require immediate investigations. Secondly, we propose a policy-driven framework for secure routing and conduct performance modeling and analysis. Further, in the QoS context, we have proposed an intent-based flow offloading scheme to meet the flow-specific QoS requirements. More importantly, we have developed an analysis by modeling TCP-based flows over WiFi, thus forming the required SDN-IoT network, by using mathematics as a tool for reasoning our challenges. With new insights from our analysis, the feasibility of the proposed approach is validated using factors such as path set-up time in SDN-IoT networks, SDN controller/devices throughputs, packets losses and response time of the controller.
