Significant research and development growth continues to propel the fields of wireless and optical communications. Information technology, Internet and multimedia communications are all based on either wireless or optical networks. Optical wireless communication is another growing field which combines optical principles and wireless techniques. This special issue brings together the state-of-the-art research contributions and developments that address the various critical issues in wireless and optical communication systems and networks.
Researchers from around the world were invited to contribute to this special issue which prompted a significant number of submissions. In addition, a selected number of authors were invited from the IEEE International Conference on Computer and Information Technology held on December 22-24, 2011 in Dhaka, Bangladesh, to enhance their papers significantly and submit to the special issue. We received a total of fourteen submissions which went through rigorous review process by the experts in the field. Nine papers were finally selected for inclusion in the special issue of the journal. The contributing authors represent academic and/or research institutions from Bangladesh, China, Sweden, Thailand, and United States of America.
