More on this journal...
The objective of IJWMC is to provide a high profile, leading edge international forum for academics, industrial professionals, practitioners, educators and executives working in the field to contribute, to disseminate innovative and important new work on wireless communications and mobile computing, eventually to achieve the ultimate goal of uncompromised connectivity and performance and to meet the challenge of creating fully integrated, seamless, fault-tolerant, and heterogeneous networks composed of fully distributed, energy efficient, and ubiquitous mobile computing platforms.
Scientists, engineers, researchers, graduate students, educators, managers and industrial professionals.
IJWMC is a refereed international journal that provides an international premier channel to report, discuss and exchange theoretical contributions (including new techniques, concepts, and analyses) and practical contributions (including system experiments and prototypes, and new applications), work-in-progress, experience, case studies, and trend-setting ideas in the field of wireless communications and mobile computing as well as potential future directions and issues. High calibre tutorial expositions and survey reports of permanent reference value are also welcome. Research papers should be of a quality that represents the latest technical developments of wireless communications and mobile computing in devices, hardware, software, communications, architecture, networks, systems, algorithms, service and applications that support the symbiosis of wireless communications and mobile computing.

Can a Wi-Fi network ever be completely secure?
23 April, 2019
There are many ways in which hackers and crackers can break into a Wi-Fi network. It is trivial if the network uses out of date security protocols or weak passwords. But even if the system is setup with the latest security measures, strong passwords, and firewall and malware protection, there are still ways and means that a malicious third party might access such a network. Writing in the International Journal of Wireless and Mobile Computing, researchers from China review the various hacking techniques that might be used and show what defensive measures might best be taken to preclude system compromise [...]More details...
