The next generation (5G and 6G) of communication networks will target unprecedented performance in terms of network capacity, quality of service, network availability, and user-experience. The convergence of the fifth-generation (5G) networks and big data analytics in today’s smart systems and devices is expected to disrupt the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) ecosystem. Advanced mathematical tools, such as those in the field of Big Data Analytics and Deep Learning (DL) also represent an extremely important opportunity to help in telecom, bioinformatics, healthcare, Internet of Things, social networks, and manufacturing. The possibility of efficiently leveraging large amounts of data, big data analytics, and Deep Learning tools, is expected to improve 5G and 6G networks through automation and self-optimization.
The main focus of this Special Section is on the most recent applications of Deep Learning and Big Data Analytics to optimize data for next-generation networks.
The topics of interest include:
– Use of Deep Learning and data analytics in the Cloud, Mobile Edge Computing and Data Center Networks
– Application of AI and ML for big data analysis in 5G networks
– Network telemetry, monitoring, and data collection
– Deep Learning for 5G-services traffic classification and forecast
– Big data analytics to improve QoS in 5G networks
