Overview:

As many as 50 billion devices will be connected to the Internet by 2020. It is predicted that the number of mobile-connected devices will exceed 11.5 billion by 2019 (nearly 1.5 mobile devices per capita), which poses a huge traffic demand for ubiquitous communications. It has been projected that the total volume of data traffic will nearly triple between 2016 and 2021, of which about 75% will originate from non-PC devices and about 42% of all connections will be for M2M communication between over 10 billion smart objects. It is anticipated that we will witness an up to 10000- fold growth in wireless data traffic by the year 2030. Predictions evidently indicates the skyrocketing demand on data traffic and applications for machine type communication such as self-driving vehicles, healthcare monitoring, smart cities and factories, and artificial intelligencebased personalized assistants along with traditional human-centric communications. Coexistence of human-centric and machine-type services as well as hybrids of these will make next generation wireless networks more diverse and complex. Current wireless radio access techniques are not capable of delivering these new applications and may pose a much higher security risk than the WiFi and 4G networks did. Without novel approaches, mobile networks will grind to a halt unless more capacity is added to mobile networks. In order to better support the Internet-of-Things (IoT) applications, many technical challenges need to be overcome in 5G and beyond including network architectures, network resource allocation schemes, and advanced signal processing techniques, etc. On the other hand, in IoT systems, the hardware security assurance is a critical and emerging issue. It is reported that about 70% of IoT devices are vulnerable to cyber-attacks. In addition, deep learning and AI techniques have been considered as promising approaches to unleash the full potential of 5G networks, IoT and cyber-physical systems.

To overcome the aforementioned challenges of emerging issues for networks of future, this special issue focuses on (but are not restricted to) the following topics.
