Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The rapid evolution of communication networks continues to revolutionize how individuals, businesses, and societies interact and operate. This Special Issue aims to capture cutting-edge innovation and research in communication networks, from the underlying technologies and methodologies to their diverse applications. We invite researchers and practitioners from across the globe to share their latest findings, insights, and perspectives in this dynamic field. Both theoretical and experimental studies related to the physical, network, and application layers are welcome, as well as comprehensive review and survey papers. The scope of this Special Issue includes, but is not limited to, the following topics:

  1. Optical Networks: Advances in optical communication technologies, architectures, and protocols.
  2. Wireless Networks: Next-generation wireless communication systems, including 5G and beyond.
  3. Network Optimization: Techniques for optimizing network performance, resource allocation, and energy efficiency.
  4. 5G and Beyond: Emerging technologies, standards, and applications in the era of 5G and beyond.
  5. Internet of Things (IoT): Communication protocols, architectures, and applications for IoT networks.
  6. Machine Learning and AI in Networks: Applications of machine learning and artificial intelligence in network design, management, and security.
  7. Network Security and Privacy: Methods for ensuring the security and privacy of communication networks.
  8. Cloud and Edge Computing: Integration of cloud and edge computing in network infrastructures.
