ICT 4830 - Broadband Wireless Networks

This course examines the key broadband radio technologies at the center of today's rapid innovation in wireless networks. Wireless telecommunications networks are studied with an emphasis on the challenges and the approaches to deal with the immense wireless data traffic explosion from devices such as the iPhone, iPad, Android smartphones and connected laptops, as well as broadband services like VOIP and mobile video. The dominant wireless telecom technologies and protocols are presented, including OFDM, MIMO, mobile IP, WIMAX, LTE, and WPANs. The “triple play” convergence of voice, video, and data over wireless networks is analyzed. The wireless telecom industry is studied from standards, carrier, and technology perspectives. Important radio network concepts are addressed, including cellular network design, cell selection and traffic concepts, mobility handoff signaling, radio resources management, location updates, roaming, as well as authentication and encryption. Prerequisites: ICT 4800, or departmental permission (contact your advisor).
