IEEE ComSoc Publications Dominate Top 4 JCR Citation Rankings for Impact in Telecommunications

IEEE ComSoc Publications Dominate Top 4 JCR Citation Rankings for Impact in Telecommunications
The IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) produces the world’s most cited publications in communications technology and science. According to the 2015 ISI® Journal Citation Report released in June 2016, IEEE ComSoc publications continue to lead in Impact Factor and total citations in the field of Telecommunications. 
 
IEEE Communications Surveys and Tutorials ranks #1 by Impact Factor among the top 15 publications. The top four publications are all from the IEEE Communications Society.
 
IEEE journals are 14 of the top 15 journals in Telecommunications by Impact Factor, 7 of which are from the IEEE Communications Society and 4 of which are IEEE ComSoc Co-Sponsored journals.
 
Top journals by Impact Factor in Telecommunications
 
5. Internet Research
7. IEEE Network (ComSoc)
8. IEEE Vehicular Technology Magazine
10. IEEE Transactions on Multimedia (ComSoc Co-Sponsored)
11. IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing (ComSoc Co-Sponsored)
12. IEEE Transactions on Broadcasting
14. IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology 
15. IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking (ComSoc Co-Sponsored))
 
Note: 
Impact Factor is the average number of times articles from a journal published in the past two years have been cited in the JCR year. These results are those generally used and relied upon by technical publications and their stakeholders.

Announcing the Winners of 2016 IEEE Communications Society Chapter Awards

Announcing the Winners of 2016 IEEE Communications Society Chapter Awards

Congratulations to the following winners of 2016 IEEE Communications Society Chapter Awards!

Chapter-of-the-Year Award Winner
The winner is ... the Malaysia Chapter! This is no small achievement and we applaud the accomplishments that led to their being chosen from among all our ComSoc chapters worldwide. The Malaysia Chapter will receive a plaque/honorarium of $2000, and its chair will attend IEEE GLOBECOM in Washington, DC to be honored during the Awards Luncheon ceremony.  

Chapter Achievement Award (CAA) Winners
For years the CAA has been and continues to be awarded to chapters that provide their members with high-level programs and activities. This year’s winning Chapter Achievement Award recipients are:

Asia/Pacific  - Malaysia
EMEA  - Romania                                 
Latin America - Panama  
North America - Ottawa  
 
Each chapter recipient of the CAA receives a plaque and honorarium of $1000. Additionally, those chairs or representatives already planning to attend IEEE GLOBECOM will receive complimentary tickets to the Awards Luncheon and be recognized publicly for their chapter’s achievements. 

 
How to become a winner?

To be considered for these awards, chapter chairs complete the yearly questionnaire which is e-mailed during the first quarter of each year--and which includes a section that provides the Council with information that is the basis for selecting our winners. 

Please join us in congratulating these chapters for a “job well done” for the good of their local membership.

Go deep! Attend the 27 July Live Online Course on NFV, SDN and the Road to 5G

Go deep! Attend the 27 July Live Online Course on NFV, SDN and the Road to 5G

Network Function Virtualization (NFV), Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and the Road to 5G

27 July 2016 | 9:00am to 4:30pm EDT 
Online course via WebEx • $250 IEEE ComSoc member • $280 IEEE member • $330 non-member 
 
5G is expected to address the new and diverse demands, and foundational shifts needed, given a wide variety of applications and user, system, operational and business requirements. As 5G evolves, Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and Software Defined Networking (SDN) play a critical role as building blocks and roadmap for an increasingly user-centric and on-demand dynamic delivery, business-aware operation and service-oriented architecture in the fundamental paradigm shifts. In this one-day live online course, you will explore the end-to-end view of NFV and SDN, and learn about the vision, requirements, key enabling technologies and architectural considerations for 5G, along with transformations and new possibilities, challenges and realities, and timeline.   
 
In the end-to-end context, role and functions of NFV, SDN, Cloud and Edge Computing, Slicing, Multi-Domain Orchestration, Open Source, Analytics, and Densification roadmap are detailed, as they enable agility, modularity, flexibility, sustainability, programmability, and efficiency. Network and business transition and transformation requirements, considerations and challenges are discussed in how they provide a service-oriented and business-agile environment, offering network on-demand and anything-as-a-service (XaaS), for a wide range of use cases and requirements, including enhanced mobile and immersive broadband and human-machine interaction with critical / low latency and massive Internet of Things (IoT). 
  
Who Should Attend 
Plan to attend if you are interested in an end-to-end understanding of NFV, SDN, 5G, IoT, and their technologies, standardization work, roles, roadmap, research areas, and timeline. 
 
Learn about and understand the end-to-end road to 5G, and discover how NFV and SDN are leading the network transformation toward the future of 5G.

Registration closes on 22 July 2016

Limited Seating. 
You will earn 0.6 IEEE Continuing Education Units for participating.
 
Food for Thought
 
"SNS Research "estimates that service provider SDN and NFV investments will grow at a CAGR of 46% between 2016 and 2020, eventually accounting for over $18 Billion in revenue by the end of 2020."

"By eliminating reliance on expensive proprietary hardware platforms, NFV (Network Functions Virtualization) and SDN (Software Defined Networking) promise to reduce service provider CapEx. In addition, both technologies can significantly slash OpEx due to a reduction in physical space, labor and power consumption."

“NFV- and SDN-related spend volume is forecast to ramp up in 2017, at which time use cases will be more defined and the cost benefits of using NFV and SDN will be more apparent. This will prompt holdout operators to jump on the bandwagon and aggressively pursue transformation with these technologies to avoid being left behind.”

according to Chris Antlitz, 
telecom senior analyst at TBR.  Source: NFV and SDN market to hit $158B by 2021.

You are invited to a Webcast: 

5G - Coexistence in a 3G/4G/Satellite World?

5G applications may utilize the crowded sub 6 GHz spectrum, as well as centimeter-wave and millimeter-wave spectrum. Operating in crowded spectrum poses questions such as:
  • How will sub 6 GHz candidate 5G waveforms coexist and interact with legacy 3G, 4G, and PAN waveforms?
  • Can the 28 GHz frequency band be shared between satellite waveforms and candidate 5G waveforms?
This webcast will discuss some of the candidate 5G waveforms being proposed and examine 5G coexistence case studies for sub 6 GHz applications and 28 GHz applications. Millimeter-wave applications will also be discussed, as well as an LTE/Radar coexistence case study.
