The deadline of the following Special Issue has been extended to July 26th.
Special Issue on Radio Access Network Architectures and Resource Management for 5G,
Physical Communication (PHYCOM) journal, Elsevier
As a next step in the evolution of mobile communication systems, research carried out by industry and academia is currently focused on the development of the new generation of mobile and wireless systems, known as 5th Generation (5G) that targets a time horizon beyond 2020. 5G intends to provide solutions to the ever-increasing demand for mobile broadband services associated with the massive penetration of wireless equipment (e.g. smartphones, tablets, massive sensor networks); the expected tremendous increase in the demand for wireless Machine To Machine (M2M) communications; the requirements of extremely reliable communications for services such as e-health; and the proliferation of bandwidth-intensive applications including high definition video, 3D, virtual reality, etc.
5G will not be a simple evolution of the used radio access technology or network architecture, like it has been the case of previous generations such as 2G/3G/4G. Instead, more radical changes can be expected from the very beginning, even in the main concepts of cellular networks. These changes are needed to provide the necessary degree of flexibility that allows combining the heterogeneous components of 5G under a common holistic framework. In this context, this special issue puts its focus on the radio access part, and specifically on the new architectures and resource management techniques that will allow achieving the requirements expected for future 5G networks.
About the Topics of Interest
In particular, the topics of interest include but are not limited to
• 5G Cellular Network Architectures and adaptive topologies
