This lecture gives an overview of systems, architectures, protocols for wireless and mobile communication systems.
We will cover, among others:
- Wireless communication and wireless channel models
- Medium access in wireless systems
- Wireless local networks (esp. IEEE 802.11)
- Cellular systems
- Techniques to assess performance of such systems and their protocols
The lecture will be taught in English.
As prerequisites for this class, you should have completed a typical Bachelor-level class on computer networks. Without such a class, we cannot recommend participating in this Master class. Ideally, your Bachelor class emphasized phyiscal-layer aspects a bit more than is typically the case in many computer science programs.
If in doubt, you should have a look at this self-assessment test: 21 questions that should give you an idea how well prepared you are for this class. It is a totally anonymous test, for your own consideration.
