Content

This basic course provides with the fundamentals of wireless transmissions and Internet mobility. It covers:

  • Radio frequency : fundamentals (spectrum, attenuation, multipath,..), components and measurements (antennas, link budgets);
  • Digital communications : modulation and spread spectrum technics, OFDM;
  • Wireless local area networks or Wireless Personnal Area Netwoks : cell planning and many access methods with a focus on the evolution of IEEE 802.11 standards including security, wireless mesh aspects;
  • Impact of user mobility on IP routing protocols (Mobile IP, Mesh networks, Ad hoc Networks, Sensor Networks);
  • Impact of on transport layer protocols;
  • Practical labs on raspberry Pi platform to set up a wireless mesh network.

Teaching and Learning Methods

  • 2h weekly hours lecture
  • 4h weekly hours integrated interactive tutorials (problem solving, assignments discussion, lab sessions)

Assessment and Grading Procedures
