Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Digital communication is a key factor for enterprise in terms of positioning and profitability. The field is linked with broadband technology, because in the broadband society theory the flow of contents (cloud journalism) and the need for guaranteed broadband are the capital factors. The coronavirus pandemic has forced the intensive use of broadband networks to support data flow (streaming, online gaming, teleworking) and new interactive contents and offers like HbbTV (hybrid broadcast broadband TV). These are the principal items to develop in order to understand the latest advances and prospects in digital communication and broadband technology.

You are welcome to submit an unpublished original research work related to the theme of ‘Digital Communication and Broadband Technology: Latest Advances and Prospects’ in sensor-enabled communication network environments.
