Special Issues
Special Issue on Integration of Satellite and 5G Networks
Submission Date: 2018-02-15

The aim of this special issue is to gather advances in satellite and terrestrial networking technologies illustrating the large spectrum wherein 5G and satellite can be suitably and efficiently integrated in a unique system platform. As such, it is expected that contributions will bring a sound balance between academic research and industrial development in order to provide a reference point for the know-how in this sector. We solicit high-quality original research papers on aspects of integrated terrestrial -satellite 5G networks including but not limited to the following topics: - Role of satellites in 5G networks - Heterogeneous terrestrial / satellite 5G network architectures - Air interface harmonization between terrestrial 5G and satellite systems - Regulatory impacts of 5G spectrum allocation on satellite/terrestrial integration - Satellite network space segment architectures (GSS, NGSS) - Integration of 5G and unmanned aerial systems (UAS) to extend service coverage - Satellite network ground segment architectures - Information Centric Networking (ICN) architectures to enable Future Internet over federated satellite - 5G networks - End-to-end dynamic resource allocation building on novel network slicing techniques - Advanced satellite payload architectures (e.g., OBP with virtual hosted payloads) to improve resource allocation flexibility on an end-to-end basis - Mobile edge computing to enhance quality of experience (QoE) of mobile users attached to terrestrial and satellite networks. - Network function Virtualization (NFV) and Software-defined networking (SDN) in converged multi-tenant satellite and terrestrial networks - Network Coding and multi-path offloading techniques for optimized backhauling - Opportunistic and Cognitive Communications for spectrum sharing over satellite and 5G segments - Intelligent / smart antennas to enable optimal share of the capacity offered by satellite and 5G terrestrial backhaul segments.
