Aims
After completing this course successfully, the student can:
  • Explain concepts and techniques for wireless and mobile networks (e.g., .propagation, orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM), spread spectrum, code division multiple access (CDMA), hidden terminal problem, random access, carrier sense multiple access with collision avoidance (CSMA), preamble sampling protocols, hybrid automatic repeat request (H-ARQ), mobility management, and handover techniques).
  • Explain the operation of existing mobile and wireless network systems (e.g. LTE, Wireless LAN, Bluetooth, Zigbee and Mobile IP).
  • Motivate the main design choices for existing and future mobile and wireless network systems.
  • Explain problems and solutions for security in wireless networks
  • Perform basic quantitative evaluations of mobile and wireless network systems.
  • Describe the challenges and solutions of new fields in mobile and wireless networking, such as ad hoc networking and 5G and proposed protocols such as ad-hoc on-demand distance vector (AODV) and optimized link-state routing (OLSR).
Content
This course concentrates on networking aspects of wireless and mobile technologies. Although the focus is on the network layer, and particularly on mobility support in the context of IP, the relevant physical layer aspects are briefly reviewed, medium access issues are described, and the effect of mobility on end-to-end transport protocols such as TCP is included. Part of this subject is devoted tot the description of different existing and future technologies, like UMTS, LTE, Wireless LANs, Bluetooth, WiMax, Zigbee and Mobile IP. Some lectures are dedicated to advanced subjects, such as ad hoc networking.
 
Prerequisite
Basic knowledge about communication networks (concepts like packets, layering, basics of TCP/IP protocol, etc.). This is covered in any bachelor course in Computer Networks. At the UT, this is covered in the bachelor module Network Systems.
