Open Special Issue on Advanced Wireless Systems


Rapid growth of wireless communications over the last decade is turning the planet into a “huge brain” with massive amounts of data circulating among diverse network entities. The emergence of Internet of Things (IoT) has driven the next step of the energy efficient wireless communications for millions of constrained devices. The new wave of technological evolution aims to exploit the huge potential market value of billion connected things, data analytics and decision making systems. The forthcoming 5G networks emphasize on efficient utilization of data by involving a potentially very large number of small and power-constrained devices with low volume of non-delay sensitive information. Such coexistence of human and machine-type services will make next generation wireless networks more heterogeneous and complex to manage. To achieve better support of the IoT applications, many wireless technologies have emerged with new network architectures, resource allocation schemes, low-energy signal processing techniques, etc.

Current Special Issue is aimed to bring together the state-of-the-art research on advanced wireless systems, which can drive the further development of 5G, IoT and beyond.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:
• Advanced network architecture design for IoT towards 5G
• Energy-efficiency in 5G for IoT applications
• Artificial Intelligence for IoT
• Human-Computer Interaction
• IoT Applications and Security
• Tactile Internet
