Guest Editor at IEEE COMSOC MMTC E-Letter (July Issue) on SDN/NFV

The July Issue of IEEE COMSOC MMTC E-Letter has just been published on-line and is for downloading here. The issue has been guest editored by Xiaoqing Zhu (Cisco Systems) and Harilaos Koumaras and provides the latest advances on SDN/NFV. More specifically, the special issue brings to our readers a collection of invited articles that address various aspects of SDN/NFV-enabled architectures for media content delivery. Authors from academia and industry share their individual perspectives regarding the opportunities and challenges brought forth by the rapid spread of SDN/NFV technologies, outlooks for the future of media content delivery in an increasingly mobile and heterogeneous environment, as well as ongoing research efforts in leveraging SDN/NFV for enhanced media content delivery.

It was really a pleasure collaborating with Xiaoqing and I believe that the outcome of our collaboration on this special issue is very good. Happy reading!!
