During the past decade, it has been realized that the current internet architecture was originally designed for end-to-end host centric communications. However, the actual focal of communications is the content itself. Hence, we have witnessed new architectures such as an Information Centric Network (ICN) with various extensions. On the other hand, enormous efforts in cellular networks have been made for improving the user experience, and today we are able to use LTE-A and so on. In this context, also the upcoming 5G networking architectures, whose ongoing research is focused on the networking mechanisms with respect to the massive increase in the number of connected devices, bandwidth requirements, reduced latency, and the deployment of supporting operational mechanisms. Moreover, these all new technologies are being applied in other networking domains as well, including VANETs, Smart Grid, Smart Cities, Internet of Things, Big Data, and so on. This special issue, therefore, brings researchers together on future internet and wireless access networks to share their new ideas and
latest findings. After a rigorous peer review process, we selected 5 high-quality papers.
