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 and edge networks, wireless services, as well as 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 service provider deployments. At the service layer, this course emphasizes wireless service architecture, including popular applications such as mobile real-time messaging, video, and mobile web services. The production of networks and services through cloud technologies is highlighted. The course also explores The Internet of Things (IoT), which plays a prominent role in modern wireless networks. 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 and operations are examined in the critical context of the conflict between over-the-top (OTT) and network operator ecosystems. Prerequisite: Required ICT 4800.
