Topical Collection Information
A 5G network can achieve 10 times the data rate and connect 1000 times the number of devices as compared to its predecessors, i.e., 4G networks. Additionally, 6G will enhance the capabilities of 5G to a much higher level, allowing millions of smart devices and applications to seamlessly exchange data with low latency and high data rates. Moreover, with only a few milli- or microseconds of delay, 5G and 6G may bring killer applications such as autonomous vehicles, remote surgeries, drone delivery services, and virtual and augmented reality, among others. As 5G/6G technology becomes more prevalent, the Internet of Things (IoT) is expected to gain more momentum. Furthermore, several 5G/6G testbeds have been built to facilitate research in the area of IoT networks enabled by 5G/6G.
This Topical Collection covers a broad range of topics related to 5G and 6G, including, but not limited to, the following:
1) Software-Defined Networking for 5G/6G-enabled Internet of Things;
2) Virtualization Techniques including Network Function Virtualization for 5G/6G-enabled networks for Internet of Things;
3) Machine Learning and Deep Learning Solutions for 5G/6G-enabled Internet of Things;
4) Cloud Computing Solutions for 5G/6G-enabled Internet of Things
5) Blockchain solutions for the Internet of Things networks enabled with 5G/6G;
6) Quantum communication and Quantum machine learning for the Internet of Things networks enabled with 5G/6G;
7) Innovative Applications including network security, smart cities, and e-healthcare applications for the Internet of Things networks enabled with 5G/6G;
8) Energy-Efficient Solutions for the Internet of Things networks enabled with 5G/6G;
9) Experimental Research on testbeds for Internet of Things networks enabled with 5G/6G;
10) Challenges and future research for 5G/6G and beyond 6G technologies.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the collection 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 1600 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.
