The data storage and its management at a remote location are one of the most challenging tasks in cloud computing. Where the mobile user seeks more data accuracy and availability in a pervasive environment. It was the core motivation for the Cloud Networks Internet-of-Things (CN-IoT). Here, we expect to retrieve the personal information arrays, and it needs a unique management methodology for growing information and manipulation procedure over the large data set and the Internet. It is the major challenge in networks based cloud system. With the exponential growth of the network and data management, the CN-IoT must be implement in fast-growing service sectors such as with logistic and enterprise management, where the “Big Data” has a crucial role. The network-based IoT work as a bridge to fill the gap between information technology and cloud networks, where the data can be easily accessible. This book provides a framework for the next generation cloud networks, and it is the emerging part of fifth-generation (5G) partnership projects. This contributed book has following features (1) on demand cloud network data access via internet and digitalization of contexts (2) creating a pervasive access network to enable a fully virtual mobile and interconnected distributed environment (3) providing a heterogeneous massive data connectivity in a distributed framework. It achieves higher speed, increased capacity, decreased latency, and better quality of service (QoS) and quality of experience (QoE). It is the one the efficient and promising technologies to meet the high demand for cloud-based network support, which allows short-range, low-power, and low-cost based internet based universal data access. The automatic identification of CN-IoT based data handling capabilities allows improving individual data user capability. The large level of implementation has the advantage of cost-efficient data access benefits.

This book outlines advancements in the state-of-the-art, standards, and practices of cloud-based networking, IoT cloud application, cloud mobility management in wireless systems. It will be an incremental effort to identify emerging trends, research, and developments that will ultimately define the future of the cloud and relation with IoT. This book would be a valuable reference for academics and practitioners alike, and this title covers topics such as cloud and network virtualization technology, IoT service-oriented architecture, network utility computing, cloud network application services, grid, and pervasive computing, and IoT enabling technologies.

The proposed book is an edited volume, and we will invite the book chapter from the expert researcher without any negotiation of subject and publication quality.
