Networks are now embedded in daily life thanks to smaller, faster, inexpensive components that are more powerful and increasingly connected. Parallel to this quantitative explosion of communication networks, technology has become more complex. This development comes with challenges related to management and control, and it has become necessary to manage the service level demands of the client to which the service provider commits.

Different approaches to managing one or more service level components in different emerging environments are explored, such as: the Internet of Things, the Cloud, smart grids, e-health, mesh networking, D2D (Device to Device), smart cities and even green networking.

This book therefore allows for a better understanding of the important challenges and issues relating to Quality of Service (QoS) management, security and mobility in these types of environment.
