aims providing in-dept coverage on mobile/wireless
networking, the characteristics of wireless radio channels, the architectures and protocols of mobile/wireless
networks, the mobile routing solutions, transport protocols for wireless channels, wide-area and local-area wireless network technologies, quality of service provisioning in mobile/wireless
environments, service and device discovery in mobile networks, sensor
networks, and futuristic visions. Students will learn in detail
the system architectures and protocol stacks of wireless
radio systems, especially BlueTooth. The problems that mobility and wireless connectivity bring to the design of network
systems and protocols will be discussed and proposed solutions will be introduced.
Simulation and/or implementation projects will be assigned in
order to have closer and hands-on experience on the covered topics.
that students should have taken a basic course on computer
networking field before taking this
course (Computer Networking course or Computer Network
Programming course). Having taken a course on operating
systems is a plus but not mandatory. Everyone should be
prepared for substantial amount of programming and/or writing a term paper. Since this is a graduate course, I
recommend undergraduate students to take this course only if their CPGA is higher than
Discussions during the classes will
be highly encouraged and you are very welcome to discuss, present, or report your ideas at any
time on any related topic in this exciting, popular, and steeply accelerating
computer, communication and networking field.
