Interests: QoS in wired and wireless IP networks; deployment of ubiquitous services and applications; engineering education
QoS is still a key element in any packet network technology. Despite important QoS advances in data communication networks, QoS is still an issue that challenges the scientific community. Current data services are provided by deeply heterogeneous networks (usually, in the area of mobility). QoS requires an end to end study of access networks and their interconnections; this is increasingly critical as bandwidth access grows. Service convergence and integration necessitate high speed networks that are able to match user contracts with traffic control and traffic management in a seamless mode. From the user’s perspective, the QoS required by different applications can be quite variable. Similarly, for a given application type, different users may require, or be satisfied with, differing levels of QoS and QoE. This Special Issue invites papers addressing and advancing QoS and QoE themes in the Internet context, including papers discussing issues that increasingly arise as a result of mobile and wireless access. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the core technologies, protocols, services, and applications that can provide better levels of QoS and QoE in wired and wireless data networks.Dr. Fernando Cerdán
Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Future Internet is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 850 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
