Green Computing and Communications for Smart Portable Devices


Smart portable devices have been playing a crucial role in the long-term evolutionary (LTE) communications and are expected to be an indispensable part of the 5G system. While smart portable devices (e.g., smartphone and tablets) have powerful computing and communication capabilities, the high data rate services, however, drain out the energy of the device much faster than before. A mobile user, for example, can watch a video on a smartphone, be served an ad for an interesting item, and tap through to the site to purchase it on the phone. However, the current phone battery is not durable to support all these activities in one day. Even worse, if a user typically transmits/shares large volumes of data for a long time, it will shorten the lifetime of the device significantly and deplete the batteries rapidly. As a result, cost-effective and energy-efficient computing and communication mechanism for smart portable devices are required to be designed and developed.

With the goal of reduction of energy consumption, green computing and communication refer to the solutions that are able to improve the network’s performances in terms of computing/energy efficiency, data privacy, and network security. This special issue intends to bring together the leading researchers and developers from both academia and industry to discuss and present their views on all the aspects of green computing and communications for smart portable devices.
