Course
Description

This

course deals with the fundamental and practical aspects in the analysis and
design of wireless systems. To
pics that will be covered are: the wireless
communication channel, cellular communication principles
, techniques used to
enhance
channel

efficiency
, overview of multiple access techniques and example
wireless communication systems. Starting from
the
transm
ission fundamentals to
case study of systems like GSM and CDMA, there will be discussions on cellular
planning, propagation, fading, channel assignments strategies, h
andoffs etc
. The
course will also give an overview of satellite communication
s, Wi
-
Fi syst
ems and
Bluetooth t
echnology.

The course directly contributes to objectives a,

d,

e and f of
the HEC Electrical Engineering Curriculum.

Expected
Outcomes

Upon completion of this course, students will:



Have good

understanding of wireless
commun
ication syst
ems at the physical
layer



H
ave familiarity

with state of the art technologies like GSM and CDMA systems
.



Understand
concepts of network planning including cell setup, frequency reuse,
handover etc.



Become familiar with
protocols like Mobile IP and WAP.



Und
erstand concepts involved in WiFi and Bluetooth technologies.



The course strongly supports expected ou
tcomes a, b, d and i of the HEC
Electrical Engineering Curriculum.
