Welcome to this special issue of Wireless Personal Communications on Advances and Challenges in Convergent Communication Networks. The main purpose of this special issue is to present new progresses and challenges in convergent networks.

Communication networks play an important role in our daily life because they allow communicating and sharing contents between heterogeneous nodes around the globe. The emergence of multiple network architectures and emerging technologies have resulted in new applications and services over a heterogeneous network. This heterogeneous network has undergone significant challenges in recent years, such as the evolution to a converged network with the capability to support multiple services, while maintaining a satisfactory level of QoE/QoS, security, efficiency and trust.

The special issue on Advances and Challenges in Convergent Communication Networks is composed by twenty nine high quality original papers covering theoretical and practical aspects on this emerging topic in order to provide novel ideas and directions for the relevant scientific industrial and academic community. We have selected a set of best papers from: a) 15th International Conference Knowledge in Telecommunication Technologies and Optics (KTTO 2015); b) 22th International Conference on Computer Networks (CN 2015); and c) the academic community around the globe (for researchers who could not participate in the above mentioned conferences). All conference papers have been extended and reviewed again by three independent reviewers.
