With the rapid evolution of different wireless networking technologies, wireless Internet will be a reality in the foreseeable future. Intensive research has been carried out in different aspects of wireless networking, such as system architecture, protocol designs and cross-layered optimisation designs. Different types of wireless operating platforms may be derived through the integration of heterogeneous networks. In addition, wireless multi-hop mesh networks can be established through interconnecting multiple wireless base-stations. Convergence of heterogeneous wireless networks and next-generation Internet may also allow wireless Internet the ability to handle a variety of applications including, for example, deliveries of bandwidth-demanding high-quality videos and images.

Research on a fundamental understanding and performance analysis of wireless Internet architectures is indispensable for the creation of the new Internet. This timely special issue will bring together researchers to present new research findings and analyse different challenging and important areas for enabling our wireless Internet in the future. We are soliciting original research comprehensible to all readers of the journal.
