Communications industry is not only a high-tech one, but also a high-energy-consuming one. With the continuous expansion of wireless networks scale, the numbers of core devices, power systems, engine rooms and base stations are increasing greatly, which leads to serious energy consumption. Thus, green communications and networks, with the aim of reducing energy costs and CO2 emissions and protecting the environment, have become a potential research focus for all the next-generation communications and network designers.

The objective of this special issue is to present a collection of high-quality research papers that report the latest research advances in the area of green communications and networks, which mainly includes the intelligent control, efficient management, or optimal design of access network infrastructures, home networks, terminal equipment, etc.

Subject Coverage
Specific topics include, but not limited to, the following:
  • The cross-layer design of energy-efficient network architectures
  • The optimal design of energy-efficient transmission protocols and frame structures
  • The optimal planning of energy-efficient network topologies
  • The energy-efficient handover in heterogeneous networks
  • Low-power circuit board design
  • PA-power intelligent control
  • Power efficient RFID networks
  • The efficient management of terminal equipment
  • Measurement and profiling of energy consumption
  • Test-bed and prototype implementation
  • Other and emerging new topics
