Evolution of Radio Access Network Technologies towards 5G

This special series originates from the international workshop organised by COST IC1004, held in May 2015 at the Technical University of Valencia. Initially, it publishes some key contributions presented at the workshop dealing with optimisation of 4G Networks performance and some aspects of 5G concepts for Future Radio Access Networks (RAN) beyond 2020. The series would continue with further articles dealing with 5G RAN related issues.
