Call for Papers: 5G System Design Solutions for Wireless Personal Applications

5G wireless standards will play a vital role in ensuring security, enabling automation on many fronts such as connected vehicles and facilitating data rates that are orders of magnitude greater than 4G LTE and thereby enabling rapid access to information. With the evolution in wireless technology, starting from 1G to the present 5G wireless networks, the data rates have grown exponentially to tens and hundreds of Gbps, paving the foundation for future networks with Tbps data rates. It is a major challenge to share huge volumes of data (videos, pictures) at the 5G rates in a multi-user environment.  Even though NOMA and OFDMA address the problem of interference in a multi-user environment, the network infrastructure and backhaul communication still lack the capabilities required to meet the challenges posed by 5G data rates. There exists an urgent need to develop a suitable security model and protocol for personal data access and networking. Consequently, this special issue seeks to address the need to develop a portable standard model in the areas of wireless personal access, 5G Mobile IOT, wireless personal home automation solutions and network security.
