Call for Blog Post Submissions

The IEEE ComSoc Techblog is receptive to guest written articles that describe research projects related to telecommunications and networking. Those projects may be done by universities, industry or government sponsored research labs. They might also be a collaborative effort of academia and industry.  There is no charge for posting such articles on our website.

Research projects in the following areas are of special interest:

  • Open Networking, Virtual Network Functions, Network Virtualization, Cloud RAN
  • Systems Integration and Tech Support for Open Hardware/Open Software
  • SD-WANs, SASE and Zero Trust Security in WANs
  • Realizing ultra low latency and/or ultra high reliability for 5G/IMT 2020 cellular networks (e.g. meeting ITU-R M.2410 URLLC performance requirements)
  • Private 4G/5G vs IEEE 802.11ax (WiFi 6) performance comparison
  • Cloud native 5G SA Core Network architecture
  • Security and Privacy for 5G and WiFi 6 Networks
  • Massive MIMO and its use in 5G
  • Overcoming Millimeter Wave limitations, e.g. line of sight communications
  • Advances in Fiber Optic transmission speed/distance or number of DWDM/CWDM channels per fiber
  • LPWANs for the Internet of Things, especially internetworking of different LPWANs
  • Interoperability and Network-to-Network Interface for SD-WANs
  • OpenRAN with network equipment and software from multiple vendors using O-RAN alliance specified interfaces
  • Data Center Networking, especially Data Center Interconnect (DCI) technologies
  • Applications of Edge Computing (MEC) in telecom networks (wireless and wireline)
  • Survey of Cloud Network Access alternatives (wireless and wireline)
  • Communications for Autonomous Vehicles (V2X)
  • Use cases and applications of AI/ML in telecommunications networks

Here is an example of a Techblog research project article that has been very popular with readers:
Empowering Low-Power Wide-Area Networks to Meet the IoT Challenge

The editorial team will NOT accept infomercials/advertisements or submissions that are so generic they don’t have any new or original content.  Also, please do not submit very detailed articles that read like a tech manual or data sheet.

Where possible, please include system level block diagrams to depict network configurations described in your proposed blog post.

Please submit an outline and abstract of your proposed guest article/blog post via email to [email protected] AND Professor García Armada at [email protected] for review.
