This book presents state-of-the-art theories and technologies and discusses developments in the two major fields: engineering and sustainable computing. In this modern era of information and communication technologies [ICT], there is a growing need for new sustainable and energy-efficient communication and networking technologies. The book highlights significant current and potential international research relating to theoretical and practical methods toward developing sustainable communication and networking technologies.
In particular, it focuses on emerging technologies such as wireless communications, mobile networks, Internet of things [IoT], sustainability, and edge network models. The contributions cover a number of key research issues in software-defined networks, blockchain technologies, big data, edge/fog computing, computer vision, sentiment analysis, cryptography, energy-efficient systems, and cognitive platforms.
