The objective of this course is to provide an understanding of various wireless networking technologies ranging from cellular networks to wireless personal area networks and IoT, including how they differ from wired networks (e.g., signal transmission, interference, medium access, mobility, etc.). Emphasis is on most recent generations of wireless networks. The course will cover the architecture and generalized protocol/operational aspects of cellular networks or wireless wide area networks, wireless local area networks, and wireless personal area networks. Deployment issues, mobility, and radio resource management will be discussed. Physical layer concepts are provided as necessary. Localization and security issues in wireless networks will also be covered.
