Course Objectives: This course has been designed to provide a broad-spectrum knowledge of wireless and mobile communication systems. It begins with the basic cellular system modeling and then proceeds towards the characterization and modeling of radio fading channels, multiplexing techniques in wireless communications and major standards of mobile radio systems.
The main Course Learning Outcomes (CLOs) of the subject are given below:
At the end of this course, student would be able to:
CLO1:Explain various wireless communication systems and recognize their multiple access technologies in accordance with their use in current and future wireless and cellular communications standards. (C2)
CLO2:Explain cellular radio concepts such as frequency reuse, handover, capacity and traffic and relate interference between mobiles and/or base stations with the capacity of cellular systems (C2).
CLO3:Apply the knowledge of multiple access techniques, cellular concept, trunking, system capacity and large- and small-scale fading to solve for various performance parameters (C3).
CLO4:Analyze propagation effects such as fading, time delay spread and Doppler spread, and analyze their impact on the instantaneous received signal strength in multipath channels (C4)
CLO5:Model trunking procedures and design cellular communication systems for a given SIR/SINR performance using various path loss models using simulator (P2)
