|Subject Area||Signals, Communications, and Networking|
|Semester||Semester 8 – Spring|
- Wireless networking architectures
- Wireless signal propagation models
- Wireless signal processing
- Link aware rate adaptation
- Advanced topics (cooperative communication, dynamic access to the wireless medium)
This class presents topics from the area of wireless communications and networking, their underlying existing technologies and motivates a deep analysis on their principles. It is the main course that goes deeper in the wireless networking concepts. The laboratory of this class helps in better understanding of these concepts, with use of software tools like the OMF framework and the OML measurements library.
After the successful completion of this class, the student will be able to
- understand the main wireless networking technologies,
- understand the wireless medium particularities as well as the special challenges that result from the wireless medium comparing to the wired one.
- understand better special research topics and deal with challenges of various wireless networking architectures (cellular, with infrastructure, ad-hoc), signal propagation models, rate adaptation, adaptive modulation and power control, etc.
