About Transactions on Emerging Telecommunications Technologies

Transactions on Emerging Telecommunications Technologies (ETT), formerly known as European Transactions on Telecommunications (ETT), has the following aims:

  • to attract cutting-edge publications from leading researchers and research groups around the world
  • to become a highly cited source of timely research findings in emerging fields of telecommunications
  • to limit revision and publication cycles to a few months and thus significantly increase attractiveness to publish
  • to become the leading journal for publishing the latest developments in telecommunications

  1. One-on-one contract game–based dynamic virtual machine migration scheme for Mobile Edge Computing

    Sungwook Kim

    Version of Record online: 19 JUN 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/ett.3204

    This paper designs a one-on-one contract game model for ENs and MUs. The contract game process is operated independently, based on the step-by-step interactive mechanism, and works to maximize overall MEC system performance while satisfying QoE requirements.

  2. Toward the network of the future: From enabling technologies to 5G concepts

    Dario Bega, Marco Gramaglia, Carlos Jesus Bernardos Cano, Albert Banchs and Xavier Costa-Perez

    Version of Record online: 19 JUN 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/ett.3205

    The aim of this article is to shed some light on the current status of the 5G architecture definition and the trends on the required technologies that will make reality the requirement set by the most important stakeholder associations. The main contributions are: a review of the enabling technologies and the novel concepts that will be the basis of future 5G Networks.

  3. A survey and taxonomy on nonorthogonal multiple-access schemes for 5G networks

    Mehak Basharat, Waleed Ejaz, Muhammad Naeem, Asad Masood Khattak and Alagan Anpalagan

    This paper provides the reader with a holistic view of multiple access schemes, methods, and strategies for optimization in NOMA. First, we discuss the taxonomy of multiple access schemes in the literature, then provide a detailed discussion of objectives, constraints, problem types, and solution approaches for NOMA. This paper also discusses the decoding methods and key performance indicators used in NOMA. Finally, we outline future research directions.

  4. Distributed device association for multiservice heterogeneous cellular networks with QoS provisioning

    M. K. Elhattab, Mahmoud M. Elmesalawy and I. I. Ibrahim

    Version of Record online: 14 JUN 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/ett.3181

    In this paper, an association algorithm is proposed to consider the QoS requirements for H2H devices (H2HDs) and IoT devices (IoTDs) coexisted in HCN. In this context, H2HDs are modeled as primary service devices (PSDVs), while IoTDs are modeled as secondary service devices (SSDVs). The device association problem is formulated as a unified optimization problem that aims to maximize the system revenue in terms of the number of accommodated SSDVs while minimizing the PSDVs' global outage probability with QoS provisioning.

  5. SymbioCity: Smart cities for smarter networks

    Federico Chiariotti, Massimo Condoluci, Toktam Mahmoodi and Andrea Zanella

    Version of Record online: 14 JUN 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/ett.3206

    In Symbiocity paradigm, communication network and smart city services form symbiotic association. While communication network provides always and everywhere connectivity to smart city services, those services can be exploited to enhance performance of the communication network. We demonstrate the capabilities of Symbiocity with one use case in City of London on using the road traffic density for optimizing mobile networks.
