Description

The evolution towards 5G is considered to be the convergence of Internet services with legacy mobile networking standards, leading to what is commonly referred to as the ‘mobile Internet’ over Heterogeneous Networks (HetNets), with very high connectivity speeds. 5G mobile communication networks will require a major paradigm shift to satisfy the increasing demand for higher data rates, lower network latencies, better energy efficiency, and reliable ubiquitous connectivity. The ever-increasing proliferation of smart devices, new emerging multimedia applications, together with an exponential rise in wireless data (multimedia) demand and usage is already creating a significant burden on existing cellular networks. 5G communications seem to also play a pivotal role in this evolutionary path, with key mobile stakeholders driving momentum towards a greener mobile ecosystem through cost-effective design approaches. Moreover, it is becoming increasingly clear from new emerging services and technological trends that the future is heading towards a digital world, where not only end-users but devices or things will be interconnected through a wireless internet. This will give rise to new business models based on smart applications, that will put in place new design requirements for next-generation mobile networks, the so-called 5G era, that includes energy and cost-per-bit reduction, service ubiquity, and high-speed connectivity as desirable traits.

5G wireless systems, with improved data rates, capacity, latency, and QoS are expected to be the solution to most current cellular network problems. The forecast for the next 10 years of traffic demand shows an increase of 1000 in scale and more than 100 billion connections of the Internet of Things, which imposes a great challenge for future mobile communication technology beyond the year 2020. Many revolutionary ideas have been proposed and explored around the world, with the prediction of the advent of 5G systems in the near future. The major technological breakthroughs will bring a renaissance to wireless communication systems for the current research and future of 5G technologies and beyond.

This Special Issue will collate research concerning the energy-efficient future mobile networks that will be built using small cells (such as femto, pico, and relay) and heterogeneous cells, which include WiFi hotspots, among others. The dense deployment of these cells and their coexistence are all new and important research challenges for future 5G and beyond. This Special Issue aims to bring together academic and industry researchers to identify and discuss technical challenges and recent results related to enhanced energy-efficient devices that can be used for 5G mobile cells. Submissions can focus on the research concept or applied research in related topics including. Original research and review articles are welcome.
