Special Issue "Practical 5G Network Servicing Use Cases"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2020.
Interests: IoT; CPS; Industry 4.0; interoperability; wireless communication; monitoring; performance evaluation; QoS, 5G
While the various aspects of 5G are already standardized, and vendors as well as operators announce deployment reports, technically sound research papers are missing on many of those success stories. The promises of 5G are being fulfilled in front of our eyes, although analyses of the actual performances and quality metrics for the related, widely-known methods, such as massive MIMO, slicing, SDN, and NFV, are harder to find.
These results are interesting from the point of view of vendors, operators, application developers, and integrators, and can even serve as great feedback for the standardization bodies. The use-case descriptions and the related results can then be utilized for modeling, optimization, or integration planning, among others.
This Special Issue focuses on practical results on 5G network service deployments—from radio-related aspects through traffic performance and quality of service to slicing. We welcome original research contributions and state-of-the-art reviews from academia and industry. The Special Issue topics include, but are not limited to, those listed in the keywords section.

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. Electronics 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 1500 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.
