Special Issue on Wireless Big Data: Technologies and Applications
Submission Date: 2017-05-01

Big data, which are described by the four “”V“” - volume (large datasets), variety (different types of data from myriad sources), velocity (data collected in real time) and value (benefits to various industries), have received considerable attentions in various applications. With the help of advanced wireless technologies, the smart devices, smartphones, smart vehicles, smart homes, smart cities, smart sensors -- a smart world -- have been come to a reality in our daily life and enriched rapidly. Meanwhile, the emerging 5G and Internet-of-Things (IoT) are increasingly producing vast amount and different types of data. Therefore, big data and the technologies related to big data demand multi-disciplinary collaboration and joint efforts from industries, academics and governments to develop new solutions. The emerging wireless technologies for big data has brought us an unprecedented opportunity to study the characteristics of wireless things, to discover new values, and to help us to gain an in-depth understanding of the hidden values. These understandings will greatly benefit the wireless operators, mobile subscribers, commercial companies, and governments. In the study of wireless technologies, big data will be a powerful tool and hot research topic, e.g., wireless signal processing, channel modelling, fog computing/edge caching, and wireless access. As a consequence, we need to find answers to effectively manage and exploit the big data in wireless systems, to build an efficient network architecture for wireless big data, and to support various applications in the future. We organize this special issue in IEEE Wireless Communications Magazine focusing on the theory and applications of wireless big data. This special issue covers two folds: (1) the most recent research results on how wireless technologies support big data; (2) novel solutions on how big data can enhance and optimize wireless communications performance.
