Dmitry Bankov – Guest Editor of Special Issue of Electronics “Real-Time Applications Support in Wi-Fi”

Electronics journal releases a Special Issue “Real-Time Applications Support in Wi-Fi”. Dmitry Bankov, a Senior Researcher in Wireless Networks Lab, will serve as a Guest Editor.

The development of computer and telecommunication technologies is giving rise to new scenarios of Wi-Fi usage, such as virtual and augmented reality, haptic technology, remote control, industrial control, and high-quality video streaming. Traffic generated by the corresponding applications — the real-time applications (RTA) — has stringent quality of service requirements, demanding very low delays, limited jitter, and very high reliability. The RTA support in Wi-Fi is a significant motivator of further development of the IEEE 802.11 standard, and many novelties of the under-development IEEE 802.11be amendment (Wi-Fi 7) aim to provide guaranteed latency for RTA. However, due to the peculiarities of Wi-Fi mostly related to the usage of an unlicensed spectrum, RTA support in Wi-Fi is a non-trivial problem. This Special Issue aims to present and investigate new approaches to RTA support in Wi-Fi networks. 

Dmitry Bankov has a rich experience serving as an editor. Dmitry Bankov has served in the organizing committee of IEEE BlackSeaCom 2018-2020. He is also a Topic Editor in MDPI Electronics.

Electronics is an international, peer-reviewed, open access journal on the science of electronics and its applications published semimonthly online by MDPI. It publishes reviews, research articles, short communications and letters. Its aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical results in as much detail as possible.
