The evolution towards 5GB is considered to be the convergence of Internet services with legacy mobile networking standards, leading to what is commonly referred to as the ‘mobile Internet’ over Heterogeneous Networks (HetNets), with very high connectivity speeds. Green communications seem to also play a pivotal role in this evolutionary path, with key mobile stakeholders driving momentum towards a greener mobile ecosystem through cost‐effective design approaches. Moreover, it is becoming increasingly clear from new emerging services and technological trends that the future is heading towards a digital world, where not only end-users, but devices or things will be interconnected through a wireless internet. This will give rise to new business models based on smart applications, that will put in place new design requirements for next generation mobile networks, the so called 5GB era , that includes  energy and cost‐per‐bit reduction, service ubiquity and high‐speed connectivity as desirable traits.

This special issue targets some high quality research and practical case studies in the very active field of reconfigurable transceivers, computational models for big data and beyond that green networking for internet of everything (IoE) applications to provide design recommendations for tomorrow’s ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) networks. We aim to harness the fragmented views on 5GB mobile communications to paint a more focused technology roadmap, putting in place a clear set of challenges, requirements and proposals to address the IoE challenges.

    Abstract A four-element compact dual-band patch antenna having a common ground plane operating at 28/38 GHz is proposed for millimeter-wave communication systems in this paper. The multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) antenna geometry consists of a slotted ellipse enclosed within a hollow circle which is orthogonally rotated with a connected partial ground at the back. The overall size of the four elements MIMO antenna is 2.24λ × 2.24λ (at 27.12 GHz). The prototype of four-element MIMO resonator is designed and printed using Rogers RT Duroid 5880 with εr = 2.2 and loss tangent = 0.0009 and having a thickness of 0.8 mm. It covers… More >

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.136, No.2, pp. 1999-2015, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.023643

    Abstract A 4-port multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) antenna exhibiting low mutual coupling and UWB performance is developed. The octagonal-shaped four-antenna elements are connected with a 50 Ω microstrip feed line that is arranged rotationally to achieve the orthogonal polarization for improving the MIMO system performance. The antenna has a wideband impedance bandwidth of 7.5 GHz with S11 < −10 dB from (103.44%) 3.5–11 GHz and inter-element isolation higher than 20 dB. Antenna validation is carried out by verifying the simulated and measured results after fabricating the antenna. The results in the form of omnidirectional radiation patterns, peak gain (≥4 dBi), and Envelope Correlation Coefficient (ECC) (≤0.01) are extracted to validate… More >
