Special Issue on 5G Technologies and Applications
Javier Gozalvez, Editor-in-Chief, IEEE VTM

The fifth-generation (5G) networks continue to emerge through evolved technologies that support massive users connectivity and multigigabits downloading speeds. The 5G is a service-based network that requires efficient selection of sliced architectures considering connected end-user and requested standard slice type.

The key advances over previous generations include spectrum extensions using new radio (NR) technologies, multi-interface access, orchestrated operations driven by network function virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networking (SDN), etc.

Those technical evolutions will improve the resource availability and system scalability in response to dynamic changes in traffic. Considering a technology road-map for development, IEEE Future Networks is sponsoring this series of special issues to publish new papers on the state-of-the-art research material that covey new concepts and results in tutorial style.

The selected papers will mark the millstones for 5G findings and trails in view of end-to-end system features. Authors are invited to submit original manuscripts on topics including, but not limited to:

  • Physical layer developments in 5G
  • Resource allocations for ultra-dense networks
  • Interoperability between licensed and unlicensed bands
  • Dense small cell deployments for edge device connectivity
  • Time alignment for dual- and multi-transmission
  • Millimetre wave band and massive MIMO
  • Network slicing and topology managements
  • Service type analysis: uRLLC, eMBB, mIoT
  • C-RAN and network function virtualization
  • 5G core network and service -based architecture
  • Network hierarchy and mobile edge computing
  • Software defined networking
  • Distributed mobility management and network intelligence
  • Network stability, control and optimization
  • Integration of various services and tools
  • Data centers and load provisioning
  • Vertical application of 5G: smart grid, V2X, etc.
  • Performance evaluation of testbeds and trials
  • Internet of Things (IoT) and support for massive connectivity
  • Innovative applications and services facilities by 5G
  • Visions for Beyond 5G technologies
  • Standardization activities by IEEE, 3GPP and ETSI

Authors should submit their manuscripts following the IEEE VTM guidelines.

Authors should submit a PDF version of their complete manuscripts (select Special Issue when submitting your paper) to ScholarOne Manuscripts.

Submission Deadline: 1 March 2019
Guest Editors:
Anwer Al-Dulaimi, EXFO, Canada
Rose Hu, Utah State University, USA
