The portable systems were utilized exclusively with the end goal of voice calls, and endeavors were made to enhance the exhibitions. Presently, the information administrations have turned into a fundamental part of the versatile systems. The improved data services are the major motivations behind the emergence of the Fifth Generation (5G) and Sixth Generation (6G) cellular networks. The research community needs to design better mechanisms in providing integrated intelligence, simplified network architecture, high bandwidth performance capabilities with on-demand scalability, and enhanced mobility. In these circumstances, the 5G cellular network improves user experience and creates a revolution in the networking environment with an optimized backhaul, converged mobility, and higher bandwidth services. In addition to these benefits, it also provides a high-speed data rate, enhanced mobility, and reduced latency. Thus, 5G plays a vital role in providing a high-speed data rate compared to 3G and 4G networks. The components of the 5G architecture are User Equipment (UE), Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC), Radio Access Network (RAN), Core Network (CN), Evolved Packet Core (EPC), Network Function Virtualization and the content server. Even though the current data services have upgraded up to Gigabits per second speed, the back-end information and network systems still face serious data service issues. The support for 5G and IoT based services, namely augmented reality, wearable health devices, mobile M2M, Location-based services, smart cities, need better algorithms and heterogeneous systems to pleasure the end user.

This Special Issue (SI) focuses on state-of-the-art success stories in various aspects of Next-Gen Networks and IoT, supported with Mobile Health Applications, Location Based Data Services and Heterogeneous Data Communication Solutions from academic and industry viewpoints.
