 In News, Press releases

SPEED-5G is calling for papers for the IEEE Internet of Things Journal special issue on “5G and Beyond, Mobile Technologies and Applications for IoT”

Following the tremendous success of 2G and 3G mobile networks and the fast growth of 4G, the next generation mobile networks (5G) was proposed aiming to provide infinite networking capability to mobile users. Differentiated from 4G, benefits offered by 5G is much more than the increased maximum throughput. It aims to involve and benefit from many current technical advances including Internet of Things (IoT). As the IoT integrates many heterogeneous networks, such as Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs), Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs), Mobile Communication Networks (3G/4G/LTE/5G), Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) and wearable health care systems, it is critical to design self-organizing and smart protocols for heterogeneous ad hoc networks in various IoT applications, such as cyber-physical systems, cloud computing for heterogeneous ad hoc networks, large-scale sensor networks, data acquisition from distributed smart devices, green communication and applications, environmental monitoring and control, etc. Moreover, based on the survey conducted by the World Health Organization, the world will lack 12.9 million health care workers by 2035. Hence, it is important to develop wearable health care systems to perform self-health monitoring. In general, wearable health care systems demands low power consumption and high measurement accuracy. Smart technologies including green electronics, green radios, fuzzy neural approaches and intelligent signal processing techniques play important roles for the developments of the wearable health care systems. This special issue aims at providing a forum to discuss the recent advances on 5G and beyond mobile technologies and applications for IoT.

About SPEED-5G
SPEED-5G is a 5G-PPP project which aims to achieve a significantly better exploitation of heterogeneous wireless technologies. To achieve this goal,  SPEED-5G will develop new techniques for optimizing spectrum utilization. As a result, SPEED-5G will provide solutions answering the request for a thousand-fold increase in mobile traffic volume over a decade and for efficiently supporting very different classes of traffic and services.
