Mobile Communications: Technology and QoS
Spring Semester (Frühjahrssemester)
Dr. Marc Kuhn
Thursday 08.00 - 12.00; LFW C 4
Introduction to mobile wireless communications, including characteristics of the wireless channel, PHY layer technologies (for example MIMO, OFDM, etc.) and MAC layer schemes; comparison of different cellular standards including 5G; definition of QoS and support of QoS in wireless networks; understanding QoS measurements, their evaluation and benchmarking in cellular networks.
Based on an introduction to wireless communications, the lecture course covers: cellular systems (focus on 4G, outlook on 5G), PHY technologies (for example MIMO, OFDM etc.), MAC schemes (e.g., in detail the IEEE 802.11 MAC), mechanisms supporting QoS in wireless networks, QoS measurements and evaluation, benchmarking.
