The lectures give overview of fundamental principles of wireless technologies and wireless sensor networks in various areas of their application. Students will understand architecture, principles and protocols used in different wireless technologies and learn how these technologies can be exploited in real world applications. Furthermore, student will practice design and configuration of wireless networks including individual communication elements of the network. The goal is to teach students how to solve problems related to deployment of wireless networks, their operation or development of wireless networks and sensor networks components.
Students must have fundamental knowledge of modulations, coding techniques and multiple access methods for wireless networks. Furthermore, they must understand to components of a communication chain, signal propagation and radio channel characteristics (attenuation, gain, interference, noise) and characteristics of spectrum and signals (mean value, energy, power, correlation, etc.). They also should have fundamental knowledge of individual layers of RM-OSI model.
The goal is to teach students how to solve problems related to deployment of wireless networks, their operation or development of wireless networks and sensor networks components.
