IEEE Access invites manuscript submissions in the area of Fairness in Futuristic Wireless Networks: Applications, Implementation, Issues, and Opportunities.
When thinking about the equity or equivalence in the operations and management of wireless networks, the key parameter need to be considered is fairness. Fairness is to provide an unbiased working environment for the distribution, sharing, allocation, and supply of resources among the devices of the system. From traditional to emerging wireless networks, fairness plays an important role at every layer of communication. Fairness maintains balance and stability between the operations of communication systems and thus improves the performance of wireless networks. Fairness is a key factor to achieve the optimal results for the parameters like throughput, Quality of Service (QoS), Spectrum utilization, Power, and Resource Management in wireless network.
The modern era of communication systems has introduced promising wireless technologies and concepts. These emerging technologies have evolved the concept of futuristic wireless networks. For the smooth operation and performance of these networks, a key factor is to establish fairness among the devices of these networks. Fairness impact the capabilities of these wireless network by controlling and managing key parameters of bandwidth, spectrum sensing, channel selection, resource sharing, and task scheduling.
The main focus of this Special Section in IEEE Access is to highlight the research on the issues related to spectrum, channel & resource management and cross layers communication in wireless communications. This Special Section will cover the topics related to the role of fairness in performance analysis, resource management and its application in futuristic networks. It also covers the solutions and algorithms of resource scheduling and offloading techniques which provide sustainability to the networks.
The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
We also highly recommend the submission of multimedia with each article as it significantly increases the visibility, downloads, and citations of articles.
