Big Data & Advanced Analytics for Future Wireless Networks

EURASIP Journal on Wireless Communications and Networking welcomes submissions to the special issue on Big Data & Advanced Analytics for Future Wireless Networks.

Big data today is a reality. Networks service providers that want to be innovative and maximise their revenue potential must have the right solution in place so that they can harness the volume, variety, and velocity of data coming into their networks and leverage actionable insight from that data. Big data brings new traffic and performance related challenges and calls for a deep revisit of the methodological tools that were traditionally used for performance evaluation and traffic engineering. New models and approaches are needed to investigate big data characteristics in terms of volume, velocity and variability and their impact on network performance; new solutions have to be designed to efficiently and securely manage information; new techniques are needed to support all phases of network planning, design and optimisation.

Potential topics include but are not limited to:

  • Big Data in wireless networks
  • Big Data in vehicular networks
  • Big Data Platforms for analysing network traffics
  • Applications, Software for wireless networks based on Big Data
  • Traffic measurement methods, tools
  • Network management and planning based on Big Data Analysis
  • Theories of Big DataAnalytics for future wireless networks
  • Self-Learning and Self-Organization Networks based on Big Data
  • Big Data methods, models for IoT, SDN, ICN
  • Security and Trust
  • Business models based on Big Data
