Question (1)
Question
I am working on 5G New Radio. NR standardizes the concept of slotless transmissions, also known as mini-slot transmission. Mini-slot constitutes scalable numbers of OFDM symbols ranging from 14, 7,4, and 2. Mini-slot is not tied to the frame structure of 5G to maintain the QoS for latency-sensitive applications. However, how mini-slot transmission works, if it does not follow the frame structure? At each time step does the scheduler at eNB transmits only a single mini-slot?

The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has put forward the concept of International Mobile Telecommunication-2030 (IMT-2030) network paradigm or Beyond-5G (B5G) network. The new verticals in the IMT-2030 network include Further enhanced Mobile Broadband (FeMBB), Enhanced Ultra-Reliable and Low Latency Communication (ERLLC), and ultra-massive Machine Type Communication (umMTC). The applications of these service type verticals are diverse and the requirements are heterogeneous in nature. The common network requirement in these service types are ultra-reliability in terms of packet delivery ratio and low latency communication. Moreover, the concept of Internet-of-Everything (IoE) in IMT-2030 paradigm require massive network resources due to exponential increase in connected devices. Moreover, the vision of 6th Generation (6G) network is to have Self-Organizable Network (SON) and Self-Sustainable Network (SSN). Device-to-Device (D2D) communication also known as Proximity Services (ProSe) is standardized in 5G and B5G network by 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP). D2D communication offers support in broad use cases, which includes data offloading, communication relay, Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X), cooperative communication, and network, cooperative learning. In order to support IoE, network should support cooperative communication and resource sharing at every tier, that is, at user equipment, edge and fog nodes, core network, and cloud tier. The amalgamation of D2D communication and Machine Learning (ML) is considered to be a prime piece of 6G jigsaw puzzle of SON and SSN. The Physical and Data Link layer in the latest Releases by 3GPP have interdepended functionality, i.e., the flexible frame size of MAC layer depends on the frequency numerology used in Physical layer. Therefore, there is a dire need for innovative and efficient resource sharing and allocation for D2D methodologies to enable SON and SSN in 6G communication. Motivated from the requirements of B5G and 6G, this special issue targets to disseminate the largest research work in the domain of cooperative communication, device-to-device communication, machine learning, and cooperative learning towards enabling SON and SSN for future generation communication networks.

https://www.mdpi.com/journal/sensors/special_issues/Artificial_Intelligence_Next_Generation_Communication The vision for Internet-of-Everything (IoE) in 6th generation (6G) technology is to connect billions of humans and machines to the Internet, which shifts the paradigm from rate-centric services such as further-enhanced mobile broadband (FeMBB) toward enhanced ultra-reliable low-latency communication (eURLLC) and ultra-massive machine type communication (umMTC). The fifth generation (5G) of cellular communication was expected to be the key enabler for IoE due to a 1000x increase in the data rate and network capacity. The development of 5G by 3GPP has led to the standardization of the new radio (NR) in Release 15, which operates exclusively over millimeter wave mmWave frequencies, and a true IoE carrier has yet to be achieved. However, most of the versions of 5G throughout the world still use sub-GHz frequencies. Although 5G readily supports URLLC services, the aim to have a self-sustaining and self-organized network (SSN/SON) has thus far remained a mirage, and these objectives have been moved upward to B5G networks. NR offers a flexible and scalable frame structure and numerology that supports network slicing at core networks as well as at access networks. Moreover, the NR-U also offers an unlicensed spectrum of support to enhance network performance. Apart from these, NR provides operability at sub-Ghz and sub-Thz frequencies, which is desperately needed to cope with the scarcity of the spectrum. NR is focused on enabling device-to-device (D2D) communication, also known as proximity services (ProSe), in the latest releases. Few active research domains of the D2D in NR represent vehicle to everything (V2X) communication and data relay. The 3GPP also discusses 24 other use-cases for D2D communication in Release 17. Having standardized modular artificial intelligence (AI) in 6G for every tier of the network with NR as its main enabler has been considered. Moreover, AI is an essential piece for enabling SSN and SON. The metaverse is a reality in the 2030 network paradigm. The critical enabler for the metaverse is tactile Internet (TI). One of the most prime use-cases of TI is tele-surgery in the healthcare sector. The age of information (AoI) is an essential factor in TI and needs to be minimized. NR is expected to enable all of these requirements for IoE in 6G network to become SSN and SON. Motivated from the requirements of B5G and 6G, this Special Issue aims to disseminate the latest and most pressing research in the domain of NR-enabled SON and SSN for future generation communication networks. The main topics of interest for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following: ~ NR-enabled frameworks for eURLLC, FeMBB, and umMTC; Algorithms and techniques for latency, data rate, and reliability optimization; ~ Intelligent network slicing; ~ Intelligent D2D communication; ~ Intelligent V2X communication; ~ Intelligent cooperative communication; ~ Intelligent backscatter communication; ~ Intelligent tactile Internet; ~ Intelligent reduction of age of information in TI; ~ Intelligent Physical layer protocols for THz communication; ~ Intelligent reflective surfaces; ~ Intelligent and flexible MAC scheduling; ~ Intelligent network routing; ~ Federated learning-enabled SSN and SON; ~ Multi-agent reinforcement learning for SSN and SON; ~ Intelligent non-terrestrial network (NTN) communications; ~ The coexistence of NR-U with IEEE802.11xx WAN standards.
