In the last decade, there has been an enormous increase in the use of internet-based technologies and services. This includes both web-based services and social media. Due to an increase in the use of internet-based technologies, the computer and networking industry has developed at a very fast pace. The biggest challenge for network development remained the need to develop technologies that can allow a large number of users to access network resources simultaneously. The use of vendor-based technologies and standardization often led to compatibility and resource constraints challenges. However, the latest trends in the networking paradigm are focusing on these challenges by bringing open source technologies on vendor-agnostic platforms.
In this context, the networking industry developed multiple networking and data sharing technologies, such as peer to peer networking (P2P), grid computing, cloud computing, fog computing, edge computing, dew computing, and IoT. With the development of the smart cities concept, smartphones can be connected to other devices to form an ecosystem of smart devices. Similarly, software-defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV) technology are vital in providing platform-independent shared storage platforms for users. If we observe closely, we can see that the main purpose of these technologies is to improve network accessibility to a shared pool of resources and the ease of network management.
The purpose of this special issue is to provide a platform for researchers to share their research experiences, both theoretical and practical, in defining the issues, challenges, opportunities, and proposed solutions to address a wide range of network resource management challenges. We are looking for contributions in the best interest of the network research community. The potential topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- AI for cloud computing
- Lightweight analytics on edge computing
- Fog computing challenges for energy sensitive IoT devices
- Mobile devices and dew computing integration
- Smart cities and IoT enabled resource constraints
- Machine learning technologies for the Internet of Things (IoT) dataset analysis
- Software-defined networking (SDN) in cloud data centers
- Mobile centric IoT/5G
- Network functions virtualization (NFV) and VM management for cloud storage
- SDN in datacenters’ resource management
- Future network architectures and internet measurement tools

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 semimonthly 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 1800 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.
