In bringing to the readers the book 5G Multimedia Communication: Technology, Multiservices and Deployment, the aim is to present current work and direction on the challenging subject of multimedia communications, with theoretical and practical roots. The past two decades have witnessed an extremely fast evolution of mobile cellular network technology. The fifth generation of mobile wireless systems has achieved the first milestone toward finalization and deployment by 2020. This is vital to the development of future multimedia communications. Also, it is necessary to consider 5G technology from the performance point of view by analyzing network capabilities to the operator and to the end user in terms of data rate, capacity, coverage, energy efficiency, connectivity and latency. The book is divided into three major parts with each part containing four to seven chapters: • Critical enabling technology • Multiservices network • Deployment scenarios The first part discusses enabling technologies, such as green communication, channel modeling, massive and distributed MIMO and ML-based networks. In the second part, different methodologies and standards for multiservices have been discussed. Exclusive chapters have been dedicated to each of the open research challenges such as multimedia operating in 5G environment, network slicing optimization, mobile edge computing, mobile video multicast/broadcast, integrated satellite and drone communication. The third part paved the way to deployment scenarios for different innovative services including integration of a multienergy system in smart cities, intelligent transportation systems, 5G connectivity in the transport sector, healthcare services, 5G edge-based video surveillance and challenges of connectivity for massive IoT in 5G and beyond systems.

Airlines in a Post Pandemic World Excerpt :

The COVID-19 pandemic represents an extraordinary inflection point that caught airlines worldwide unprepared, causing CEOs to recalibrate their business models. This book explains why this unprecedented pandemic is different from the past disruptions experienced by the airline industry during the past 50 years, and what airlines and related businesses now can do to adapt to the dramatically changed marketplace. This book presents two future scenarios: continuous improvements and elastic supply. These are considered in three specific contexts for the rebuilding of the airline business. These contexts, in the order of urgency with respect to change from the status quo, are the following. The first context is for airlines to become better prepared to deal with frequent and deeper disruptions that could be localized or globalized relating to such areas as climate change, geopolitics, and cybersecurity. The second context is to collaborate and integrate within the much broader travel ecosystem, possibly using platforms to innovate on new value systems. The third context, which has always been the case and drives the first two, is for airlines to offer real solutions to people’s travel needs, solutions developed with imagination and turbocharged innovation, even as we contemplate new technology airplanes and mobility as a service solutions. This book is recommended reading for all senior-level practitioners of airlines and related businesses, as well as aviation policy makers worldwide.
