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. DevOps for network function virtualisation: an architectural approach

    The SONATA project targets both the flexible programmability of software networks and the optimisation of their deployments by means of integrating Development and Operations in order to accelerate industry adoption of software networks and reduce time-to-market for networked services. SONATA supports network function chaining and orchestration, making service platforms modular and easier to customise to the needs of different service providers, and introduces a specialised Development and Operations model for supporting developers.

  2. Design of a Gigabit DSL modem using super orthogonal complete complementary codes

    A novel code allocation algorithm is introduced, for a Gigabit DSL modem that provides MUI-free communication in a FEXT dominated environment by incorporating SOCC spreading into the existing xDSL modem architecture, to provide all users with equal data rate ratios, even with bad line profiles and high-required data rates. 1-Gbps aggregate throughput can be obtained over a 0.5-mm single copper pair over a distance of 180-150 m when ADSL2+ or VDSL2 Profile 30a service bands are avoided

  3. Dynamic PSS and commercial networks spectrum sharing in the time domain

    There is great consensus in the evolution of existing public safety and security (PSS) mobile communication systems towards broadband, with the exploitation of long-term evolution technology. Having a unique technology allows synergies between commercial and PSS worlds, and in particular, we propose a spectrum sharing policy based on dynamic allocation of time subframes. Some resources are exclusively dedicated to one of the two networks, and others are simultaneously accessed. The goal is to find suitable resource partitioning and users allocation.

  4. Subgraph selection over coded packet networks with multiple QoS parameters based on DEA

    In this paper, we study the problem of constructing a subgraph to allocate to coded packets, where several quality-of-service parameters, for example, bandwidth, delay, profit, packet loss, and error rates, are associated with each arc. We first evaluate the relative efficiency of arcs in the network based on data envelopment analysis techniques to send coded packets. Then, a linear programming model is introduced to determine coding subgraphs with respect to the relative efficiency of the arcs.

    Converged heterogeneous advanced 5G cloud-RAN architecture for intelligent and secure media access aims to tackle low-latency and end-to-end security for converged fixed/wireless 5G access networks. In this paper, we present the key drivers and requirements towards a hierarchical, distributed-intelligence 5G architecture, supporting low latency, security, and open access as features intrinsic to its design. We also investigate the business perspective of the proposed 5G solution and the changes that can be foreseen for the telecom ecosystem.
