IEEE Networking Letters – Special Issue on Networking Enablers for 6G Use Cases
Call For Papers
Thanks to its three major enablers, i.e., enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB), massive machine type communications (mMTC), and ultra reliable low latency communications (URLLC), 5G communications paved the way to use cases such as networked robotics and autonomous systems, distributed and collaborative sensor/actuator technologies, personalized user experience and extended reality. These applications seek lower latency (100 microseconds at peak rate), faster speed (i.e., 100x), and higher penetration per square kilometer (i.e., 10x).
Expected to become a reality in 2030, 6G communications call for efficient and effective solutions that align with the 6G roadmap. With this in mind, the Special Issue on Network Enablers for 6G Use Cases invites researchers to submit their original contributions leveraging transformational methods, techniques, and platforms to advance state-of-the-art and address open issues and challenges from the standpoint of networking in the realization of 6G Use Cases.
