Aims and objectives

This unit of study aims to enable you to appreciate the key ideas, design principles and models used in modern mobile telecommunication systems and wireless networks.

Unit Learning Outcomes (ULO)

Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to:

1. Appreciate and use common mobile and personal communications terminology and IEEE standards. (K3, K6)
2. Predict the performance of wireless links under varying conditions, by selecting and applying suitable channel models. (K1, K3, S1, S2)
3. Design cellular mobile telecommunication systems to specified parameters, using analytical and empirical rules. (K3, S1, S2, S3)
4. Appreciate the design principles behind modern mobile computing/wireless systems and networks. (K3, K4, S1)
5. Predict the performance of wireless modulation and multiple-access techniques by performing the appropriate calculations. (K2, S1, S2)
6. Assess the behaviour of protocols (IEEE standards) and architectures used in current wireless networks. (K3, K4, K6, S1)
7. Conduct experiments using simulation tools to analyse the performance of wireless communication systems and sub-systems and interpret results and formulate conclusions (K2, K3, S1).
