IEEE Communications Magazine Series on
Telecom Software, Network Virtualization, and Software Defined Networks


The key role software is increasingly playing in Telecommunications is enabling unprecedented levels
of abstraction , disaggregation, and programmability in network infrastructures and services.
This gave birth to the trend of "network softwarization" that advocates for network architectures
that separate the software implementing network functions, protocols and services from the hardware
running them.

Propelled by the maturity of technologies like network function virtualization, and software-defined
networking, software-based networking is radically changing the way communication infrastructures are
designed, programmed, integrated and operated. This enables rapid and innovative service creation
with easy deployment, and opens the door for a faster pace of innovation in the networking and ICT

Underpinning this global trend, this IEEE Communications Magazine Series aims at bringing together
the latest advances, technical innovations, open source projects, research, and development
in Telecom Software, Network Virtualization, and Software Defined Networks. Contributions from
industry and academia are welcome. Authors are invited to submit manuscripts in all topics within
the scope of this Series including, but not limited to, the following aspects of software-based

- Software-based network architectures/infrastructures, network slicing, network function
virtualization, and service function chaining.
- Network operating systems, network functions, interfaces, deployment and integration with software-
based control, management and orchestration.
- Programmability of data, control and management planes.
- Performance measurements, evaluation and monitoring, validation and debugging.
- Scalability, elasticity, resilience, maintainability.
- Safety and security.
- Experience reports from experimental testbeds, software-based networks standards, open-source
projects and solutions.
- New and emerging topics (e.g., end-to-end and multi-domain software-based networks; Artificial
Intelligence-assisted networks; high precision network software, infrastructures and services with
QoS guarantees).

Papers can be submitted anytime during the year. They will receive a review process, and if accepted,
they will be published in the first slot available for this Series.

Manuscripts must be submitted through the magazine's submissions Website available at You will need to register and then proceed to the author
center. On the manuscript details page, please select "Telecom Software, Network Virtualization,
and Software Defined Networks Series" from the drop-down menu. Manuscripts should be tutorial
in nature and should not be under review for any other conference or journal. They should be written
in a style comprehensible and accessible to readers outside the specialty of the article.
Mathematical equations should not be used. For detailed submission guidelines please refer
to the magazine website for the list of guidelines that must be followed by all submissions
to the IEEE Communications Magazine:
