UNIK4700 - Building Mobile and Wireless Networks

Abstract The course provides knowledge on how to build networks, based on radio characteristics, mobile and wireless systems, propagation characteristics. Hands-on experiences with radio communications are used to complement the theory.
Objective (max 350 words) This course is extending the knowledge of students into the areas of radio communications and should thus be seen as a supplement to high-frequency directional radio links and mobile radio evolutions. Focus in this course will be on radio links for personal and mobile devices covering from some cm (contactless, short range) up to some 10 meters (wireless area). The second half of the course will specific topics in building networks. Topics include: (i), Principles of radio propagation and radio interaction, (ii) Research topics in contactless, short-range and wireless radio networks, (iii) IP-based mobility management for high throughput, and (iv) Evaluation of prediction models for future mobile communication systems

The main goal of the course is to work with scientific literature and analyse advantages and weaknesses of suggested approaches. Students will be asked to select topics, work through the related literature, perform an analysis of the literature, present the results towards the other students and discuss the advantages and shortcomings.This introductory work is mandatory for the participants, as it forms the basis for a home work, analysing selected topics in dedicated areas. The home work will be a report, and contributes to the final grade.Simulation of throughput in a network simulator is the second topic relevant for the final grade. Participants will learn to use the network simulator, and analyse specific radio interfaces.
