Summary

Intelligent Computing Techniques in communication systems will facilitate many new features in network management and operations. Artificial Intelligence, Intelligent Computing Techniques, IoT in Communication Systems and Deep Learning are offering practical tools for many engineering applications. Recent Intelligent Computing Techniques are giving unexpected solutions for Wireless network applications. Wireless network applications, such as real-time traffic data, sensor data from driverless cars, or entertainment streaming recommendations, generate enormous quantities of data for real-time collection and processing. These requirements can only be met through the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning techniques in wireless infrastructure and end-user devices. Fifth-generation (5G) and beyond communication systems are expected to provide services with massive connectivity, ultra-low latency, extremely high security, extremely low energy consumption, and ultra-high data-rate. The varying IoT infrastructures (e.g., cloud, edge, fog) and the limitations of the communication protocols in transmitting/receiving messages become the barriers in creating an intelligent IoT system. These barriers prevent current intelligent communication applications to adaptively learn from other multimedia communication systems.

 

The objective of this Special issue is to explore Intelligent Computing Techniques to address practical challenges in wireless networks. We hope to bring researchers and academics together to present their latest work on network modelling and architecture, networking applications, security and privacy, load balancing, and various challenges related to the design of future wireless networks using AI and deep learning methods.

Published Papers
  • A New Handover Management Model for Two-Tier 5G Mobile Networks
  • Abstract There has been an exponential rise in mobile data traffic in recent times due to the increasing popularity of portable devices like tablets, smartphones, and laptops. The rapid rise in the use of these portable devices has put extreme stress on the network service providers while forcing telecommunication engineers to look for innovative solutions to meet the increased demand. One solution to the problem is the emergence of fifth-generation (5G) wireless communication, which can address the challenges by offering very broad wireless area capacity and potential cut-power consumption. The application of small cells is the fundamental mechanism for the 5G… More

  • Sum Rate Maximization-based Fair Power Allocation in Downlink NOMA Networks
  • Abstract Non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) has been seen as a promising technology for 5G communication. The performance optimization of NOMA systems depends on both power allocation (PA) and user pairing (UP). Most existing researches provide sub-optimal solutions with high computational complexity for PA problem and mainly focuses on maximizing the sum rate (capacity) without considering the fairness performance. Also, the joint optimization of PA and UP needs an exhaustive search. The main contribution of this paper is the proposing of a novel capacity maximization-based fair power allocation (CMFPA) with low-complexity in downlink NOMA. Extensive investigation and analysis of the joint impact… More

  • Network Quality Assessment in Heterogeneous Wireless Settings: An Optimization Approach
  • Abstract The identification of an effective network which can efficiently meet the service requirements of the target, while maintaining ultimate performance at an increased level is significant and challenging in a fully interconnected wireless medium. The wrong selection can contribute to unwanted situations like frustrated users, slow service, traffic congestion issues, missed and/or interrupted calls, and wastefulness of precious network components. Conventional schemes estimate the handoff need and cause the network screening process by a single metric. The strategies are not effective enough because traffic characteristics, user expectations, network terminology and other essential device metrics are not taken into account. This… More

  • RSS-Based Indoor Localization System with Single Base Station
  • Abstract The paper proposes an Indoor Localization System (ILS) which uses only one fixed Base Station (BS) with simple non-reconfigurable antennas. The proposed algorithm measures Received Signal Strength (RSS) and maps it to the location in the room by estimating signal strength of a direct line of sight (LOS) signal and signal of the first order reflection from the wall. The algorithm is evaluated through both simulations and empirical measurements in a furnished open space office, sampling 21 different locations in the room. It is demonstrated the system can identify user’s real-time location with a maximum estimation error below 0.7 m… More
