Title: Paving the Way for 5G Through the Convergence of Wireless Systems
A book edited by Dr. Ramona Trestian, Middlesex University, London, UK
and Dr. Gabriel-Miro Muntean, Dublin City University, Dublin, Ireland
To be published by IGI Global:
In the ever-evolving telecommunication industry, smart mobile computing devices have become increasingly affordable and powerful, leading to significant growth in the number of advanced mobile users and their bandwidth demands. Technological improvements alone would not be able to keep up with this explosion of mobile broadband traffic.
Thus, the next generation of wireless networks is seen as an enabling solution that could bring together broadband, broadcast and cellular technologies for global consumers and could contribute to the economical, social and technological benefits.
The Overall Objectives of the Book
This book comes to present a collection of existing broadband, broadcast and cellular coexistence solutions that aim at paving the way towards next generation wireless networks, 5G. The book aims at addressing the coexistence problems which could appear at different levels e.g., physical characteristics, open access, technology-neutrality, economic characteristics, healthcare, education, energy, etc.
Recommended topics include, but not limited to:
• Efficient and Productive usage of the spectrum resources
- Solutions and challenges
- Socio-economic characteristics
- Impact on education, healthcare, and technology
- Open-access, technology neutrality, coverage obligations
- Mobility challenges and management
• Broadband, broadcast, and cellular technologies coexistence
- Solutions and challenges
- Interoperability aspects
- Physical characteristics
- Interferences and coexistence issues
- Quality-of service provisioning
- Cross-layer optimization
