COURSE DESCRIPTION This course introduces a brief overview of current wireless systems and standards. Characterize the wireless channel, including path loss for different environments, random log-normal shadowing due to signal attenuation, and the flat and frequency-selective properties of multipath fading are examined. Simple digital modulation techniques and their performance under wireless channel impairments and diversity techniques to improve the wireless link quality are investigated. The course will also study the multiple access capabilities of spread spectrum, multicarrier modulation and a brief overview of wireless networks, including multiple and random access techniques, WLANs, and cellular system design STUDENT LEARNING OBJECTIVES/OUTCOMES 1. Large-scale propagation effects 2. Small-scale propagation effects (Multipath fading) 3. Prediction of the radio cell coverage 4. Basic digital modulation techniques used in wireless communications 5. Performance of basic digital modulation techniques over wireless channels 6. Diversity techniques to mitigate the effect of multipath fading 7. Basic principles of multiple access methods 8. Basic code division multiple access (CDMA) methods 9. Cellular system design and cellular capacity analysis Course Syllabus Page 2 REQUIRED TESTBOOK and MATERIALS Textbook: Wireless Communications by Andrea Goldsmith, Cambridge Univ.
