Next-Generation Mobile Services


What might comic book heroes, crowdsensing, and Internet computing have in common? In this column, they share the possibility of futuristic techniques for mobile devices.



Explosive growth in data traffic for mobile networks — fueled by applications such as ultra-high-definition video or augmented reality — is driving the industry toward fifth-generation (5G) mobile wireless networks. Many advances are underway, covering wireless access and network technologies. This special issue discusses TCP/multipath-TCP with new mmWave radio bands, network slicing, and dynamic botnet detection in 5G.

TCP and MP-TCP in 5G mmWave Networks


Future 5G networks will likely include mmWave radio access communication links, because of their potential multi-gigabit-per-second capacity. However, these frequencies are characterized by highly dynamic channel conditions, which lead to wide fluctuations in the received signal quality. This article explains how the end-to-end user experience in mobile mmWave networks could be affected by a suboptimal interaction between the most widely used transport protocol, TCP, and mmWave links. It also provides insights on the throughput-latency tradeoff when Multipath TCP (MP-TCP) is used judiciously across various links, such as Long-Term Evolution (LTE) and mmWave.

Network Slicing for 5G: Challenges and Opportunities


Network slicing for 5G provides Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) for different use cases, allowing network operators to build multiple virtual networks on a shared infrastructure. With network slicing, service providers can deploy their applications and services flexibly and quickly to accommodate diverse services’ specific requirements. As an emerging technology with a number of advantages, network slicing has raised many issues for the industry and academia alike. Here, the authors discuss this technology’s background and propose a framework. They also discuss remaining challenges and future research directions.

Dynamic Reconfiguration in 5G Mobile Networks to Proactively Detect and Mitigate Botnets


Botnets are one of the most powerful cyberthreats affecting continuity and delivery of existing network services. Detecting and mitigating attacks promoted by botnets become a greater challenge with the advent of 5G networks, as the number of connected devices with high mobility capabilities, the volume of exchange data, and the transmission rates increase significantly. Here, a 5G-oriented solution is proposed for proactively detecting and mitigating botnets in a highly dynamic 5G network. 5G subscribers’ mobility requires dynamic network reconfiguration, which is handled by combining software-defined network and network function virtualization techniques.

On the (In)effectiveness of the Share/Tweet Button: Idea Management for Civic Participation


The authors study the practice of promoting idea campaigns in social networks via the well-known Share/Tweet button. They analyze data about 53 civic participation initiatives collected from IdeaScale, one of the leading online idea management platforms today, and unveil a considerable misconception about the effectiveness of the practice. The article highlights open challenges and suggests a set of alternative techniques to leverage on the ideation capacity of social networks.

Autonomic Networking: Architecture Design and Standardization


Autonomic networking is a promising solution to handle the ever-increasing management complexity of dynamic network environments. This article elaborates on two autonomic networking architectures and current standardization activities revolving around them.

Interoperable Federated Cloud Networking


The BEACON framework enables the provision of federated cloud infrastructures, with special emphasis on intercloud networking and security issues, to support the automated deployment of applications and services across different clouds and datacenters. BEACON is distributed as an open source software, and some of its innovative features have contributed to the OpenNebula and OpenStack cloud management platforms.

The Lambda and the Kappa


Whether lambda or kappa, there’s no free lunch!

Secure Voting: A Call to Arms


The attacks on recent national elections show that the public’s complacency and trust in the election process should be re-examined. Going forward, what are the best options to ensure elections’ integrity?

A Revised View of the IoT Ecosystem


Despite the promise and possibility of such technology, the frequency and sheer number of devices to be configured within an Internet of Things network can leave the door open to some frightening possibilities.
