Advanced wireless networks

Published: 20 December 2021

This course will develop your knowledge in wireless networks. You will immerse yourself in the various technologies and gain practical knowledge in modern network technologies

About the course:

The teaching consists of lectures, laboratory work and a seminar assignment. The laboratories are presented orally and can be provided with the last day for submission.

Course content:

  • Basic knowledge of wireless communication
  • Sensor network (IEEE802.15.x protocols, eg, Bluetooth, ZigBee)
  • Local wireless networks (IEEE 802.11x protocols)
  • Mobile networks (LTE, WiMax)
  • Mobility in Wireless Networks (Mobile IP, mobile ad-hoc networks, delay-tolerant networks)
  • Hot research theme in the field of wireless networks
  • Network simulation

At the end of the course you will be able to:

  • Explain the parts of modern radio broadcasting technology.
  • Calculate the size of radio broadcast areas.
  • Explain the \ "hidden / exposed terminal \" issue and explain the difference between MAC protocols in wireless and wired networks.
  • Describe the channel congestion problem in the MAC and transport layer.
  • Calculate path using the famous Bellman-Ford and Dijkstra path selection algorithms and identify path selection protocol problems in wireless networks.
  • Explain the concepts behind reactive and proactive routing protocols in wireless networks.
  • Explain the concepts behind geographical and content-based routing protocols in wireless networks. Identify the problems with the use of transport protocols in wireless multi-hop networks
  • Simulate TCP and UDP in a wireless environment and different routing protocols in a network simulator and measure performance parameters such as throughput, packet-loss frequency.
  • Explain the principles behind the network architectures WiMax, Zegbee and Bluetooth, LTE.
