Scope & Topics

The International Journal of Next - Generation Network ( IJNGN) transports all information and services such as voice, data and media by encapsulating these into packets. Limitations of Internet era can be overcome by Next-generation network protocols and their advanced features and technologies. Research and development on Next-Generation Network (NGNs) have been carried out over the last few years. The International Journal of Next- Generation Network (IJNGN) is an open access peer-reviewed journal that focuses on architectural changes in telecommunication core and access networks. The Journal aims to present the latest developments and technical solutions in the areas of NGN system, multimedia services, and its related deployment, performance, security and mobility. The goal of this journal is to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to focus on advanced NGN concepts and establish new collaborations in these areas. Authors are solicited to contribute to this journal by submitting articles that illustrate research results, projects, surveying works and industrial experiences that describe significant advances in the field of next Generation Network
