The first part of the course will provide a comparative assessment of the standards and technologies underpinning promising broadband wireless access solutions.
Key standards include 802.16 (WiMax), 3G/4G/LTE, mobile digital TV broadcast, and 802.22 (wireless regional area network), with emphasis on the 802.16 standard. Key technologies include multimedia support, multiple antenna
transmission, cognitive radio, and fixed-mobile convergence.
The second part of the course focuses on emerging Wi-Fi technologies. Specifically, it will cover mesh networks, Wi-Fi/cellular interworking, security, quality of service (QoS), new applications, high-rate systems, and emerging 802.11 standards.
