Communications Systems” book series, Springer (2017)*


The usage of mobile devices steadily grows causing an enormous raise in 
the mobile data traffic over the Internet. Data is not produced only by 
handheld devices, such as mobile phones and tablets, but also by 
pervasive and wearable devices. They are configured for collecting and 
delivering data to related servers that host online/mobile social 
networks. To further support this argument, the explosion of data (i.e., 
web traffic and social network comments, as well as software and 
sensors) helps businesses to guide decisions, trim costs and lift sales. 
The link of communicating sensors to computing intelligence motivates 
the rise of Internet of Things (IoT) or Industrial Internet. However, 
the computer tools for gleaning knowledge and insights from the 
unstructured data are fast gaining ground. In this context, the 
multi-source collection of data brings into the researchers’ attention 
issues that should be investigated, like novel access mechanisms and 
multi-source Mobile Big Data Collecting techniques. Also, the huge 
amount of data raises issues of distributed Big Data Storing 
methodologies and Intra/Inter-Big Data processing.

In addition, the new trends of mobile networks that enable the 
inter-connection of new types of devices along with their services rise 
the need for adopting new data management solutions and network 
architectures to support the provision of novel services and 
applications. Furthermore, the fifth generation (5G) wireless 
communication systems are envisaged to lead to higher-level mobile 
users’ experiences, while it will also contribute to host novel services 
and applications, which in turn will produce a vast amount of data. With 
the emergence of ultra-fast 5G mobile networks and highly-featured 
smartphones, tablets and wearable computing devices, the prerequisites 
will be met for bringing cloud computing to the mobile domain.This book 
indicates the emerging advances in Mobile Big Data based on an 
engineering perspective, which are underway in research and cover a wide 
range of mobile applications as well as scenarios.

    The Overall Objective of the Book

This book aims to become a state-of-the-art reference, discussing 
progress made, as well as prompting future directions on the theories, 
practices, standards and strategies that are related to the Mobile Big 
Data domain. The book will target methodologies aiming to take Mobile 
Big Data to the Cloud, and be able to process Real-Time Streaming Events 
on-the-move. The need of high velocity processing and low latency 
response will be one of the major characteristics of the aims and 
objectives of the sections related in the proposed book. Another aim of 
the proposed book is to discuss methods and practices to improve 
multi-source Big Data collecting techniques, as well as the integration 
of resources’ availability through the 3As (Anywhere, Anything, Anytime)
