ICT 4840 (4 credits)

Next Generation Wireless Networks and Services

The rapid innovation in wireless networks that is at the center of today's ICT industry takes place in the four areas of broadband radio, core & edge networks, wireless services, as well as devices and smart objects. This course focuses on the key next generation technologies at the core network, service and object layers.
First, the role of the Internet Protocol Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) in the core network is examined, which is at the heart of many next generation deployments. At the service layer, this course explores wireless service architecture, including popular applications such as mobile real-time messaging, TV/video and mobile web services.

The Internet of Things (IoT) plays an increasingly prominent role at the object layer of modern wireless network designs. A case study approach is taken to highlight core use cases from key industries including Smart Cities, the Smart Grid and Industry 4.0. Finally, wireless product development, deployment and operations are examined in the critical context of the conflict between over-the-top (OTT) and network operator based ecosystems. Prerequisite: ICT 4800 or departmental permission.
