Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The explosion of mobile data traffic, rapid increase in connecting devices, everything in the cloud, hyper-realistic media for converged services, and knowledge as a service enabled by big data analysis are the five megatrends of mobile services in 5G networks. User expectations are high with upcoming 5G. In order to fulfill the future demands, there exists a need to explore issues like virtual/augmented reality, massive content streaming, telepresence, user-centric computing, crowded area services, smart personal networks, smart buildings, and smart cities.

5G is a continued effort toward rich ubiquitous communication infrastructure, promising services that are public (e.g., surveillance, security and safety), omnipresent (e.g., IoT), and immersive (e.g., virtual/augmented reality). Moreover, intelligence (e.g., user centric computing) and autonomy (e.g., smart transportation, robots and drones) are of equal importance for such services. In general, requirements are service specific. However, closely observing the nature of such services, high reliability and ultra-low latency are identified as primary requirements for most of these. High data rates, energy efficiency, cost, high mobility and massive connection are among other requirements for 5G services. Moreover, need for resilient, robust and high survivability infrastructure is necessary to cope with disastrous situations.

This Special Issue focuses on the most recent advances in interdisciplinary research areas encompassing the 5G domain. This Special issue will bring together researchers from diverse fields and specialization, such as communication engineering, computer engineering, computer science, information technology, bio-medical and mathematics. We invite researchers from industry, academia and government organization to discuss challenging ideas and novel research contributions, demonstrate results, and share standardization efforts on the 5G and related areas.

Topics of interest include, but not limited to the following:

  • Immersive 5G Service
    • Virtual/ Augmented Reality
    • Massive Contents streaming
    • Telepresence
  • Intelligent 5G Service
    • User-centric Computing
    • Crowded Area Service
    • Edge/FOG Computing
  • Omnipresent 5G Service
    • Smart Personal Devices
    • Smart Health
    • Smart Building
    • Smart Grid
    • Smart City
    • Smart Factory Systems
  • Autonomous 5G service
    • Smart Transportation
    • Drone-based 3D connectivity
    • Robot-based Service
    • Teleoperation
  • Public 5G Services
    • Private security and Public Safety
    • Disaster Monitoring
    • Emergency Service

In this paper, emerging 5G mobile services are investigated and categorized from the perspective of not service providers, but end-users. The development of 5G mobile services is based on an intensive analysis of the global trends in mobile services. Additionally, several indispensable service requirements, essential for realizing service scenarios presented, are described. To illustrate the changes in societies and in daily life in the 5G era, five megatrends, including the explosion of mobile data traffic, the rapid increase in connected devices, everything on the cloud, hyper-realistic media for convergence services and knowledge as a service enabled by big-data analysis, are examined. Based on such trends, we classify the new 5G services into five categories in terms of the end-users’ experience as follows: immersive 5G services, intelligent 5G services, omnipresent 5G services, autonomous 5G services and public 5G services. Moreover, several 5G service scenarios in each service category are presented, and essential technical requirements for realizing the aforementioned 5G services are suggested, along with a competitiveness analysis on 5G services/devices/network industries and the current condition of 5G technologies.
