Learning Outcomes

This course primarily targets Masters students but also ambitious Bachelor students who want to get the opportunity to broaden their knowledge of specific wireless communication technologies. After completing this course, students will have deep knowledge about wireless technologies from the IEEE 802 protocol family (e.g., WiFi, Bluetooth and ZigBee), technologies for adhoc/mesh networks and classical cellular networks. Additionally, during the labs, students will have the opportunity to study selected technologies or technology-oriented problems in hands-on exercises.


The goal of this lecture is twofold. First, to provide a solid overview of modern wireless communication systems. To this end, the scope of addressed topics is very broad, ranging from technologies suited for personal/short range (Bluetooth, ZigBee), local networks (IEEE 802.11) and ad-hoc/mesh networks (IEEE 802.11s) to the classical cellular networks, including the most important standards in the evolution path: GSM, GPRS, UMTS, LTE, and LTE-Advanced. Second and most importantly, the aspect of integration of the above-mentioned systems will be discussed (e.g., mobile IP), with many practical details on how different technologies and solutions can co-exist together in order to improve the overall service efficiency. Additionally, student will be able to gather hands-on experiences with selected technologies through homework (e.g., running computer simulations).
