Mobile and Wireless
Systems

CS (optional)

Course overview


The course will provide advanced understanding of
modern mobile and wireless systems. It will provide the
fundamental technical concepts for the design, modeling,
implementation and optimisation of mobile and wireless
systems including GSM, UMTS, WLAN and WiMAX
systems. It will cover concepts including architectures,
design and implementation, mobility and network
management, network evolution and development,
rollout, adaptation and optimisation.

Module Aims


To provide an in
-
depth study of the application and
network requirements of wireless and mobile
communications systems.


To develop an understanding of the theory and practice of
building modern mobile and wireless systems.


To develop an advanced understanding of the technical
concepts for the design, modeling, implementation and
optimisation of mobile and wireless systems.

Learning Outcomes


After completing the module you should be able
to:

1.
Critically review and identify the technical requirements of
applications and network infrastructures supporting modern
wireless systems.

2.
Apply creative skills in the development of applications and
network infrastructures of modern wireless systems.

3.
Critically evaluate and identify the technical requirements of
applications and network infrastructures supporting modern
mobile telecommunication systems.

4.
Apply knowledge in the development of applications and
network infrastructures of modern mobile telecommunications
systems.
