Wireless Communication in Dynamic Settings

2019/2020

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Learning objectives

Knowledge

The students must have insights into

  • Digital communication of analog or digital data over a stochastic fading channel.
  • A basic wireless communication system and identify the individual blocks and their interaction. Thus, comprising the ends of the communication links, the transmission technique, the access technology as well as the fading channel
  • The interaction of multiple communication links which are jointly considered to optimize system performance
  • Performance enhancing properties of multi antenna system or other technology, in a wireless communication system, with focus on the lower layers of the communication chain
  • Channel characterization and processing algorithms to exploit multi link radio propagation mechanisms of multiple antenna systems

Skills

The students must be able to

  • Extract the specific operating conditions of selected system block(s) in context of the over all communication chain
  • Compare and evaluate the stochastically varying links, apply and assess stabilization methods to compensate for these variations.
  • Evaluate the space and frequency dispersive behavior of the channel.
  • Must be able to evaluate and select among different multi antenna techniques for channel stabilization and capacity enhancement.
  • Evaluate the impact on system performance, by joint treatment of links in a multi-user/multi- network scenario – or other interaction mechanisms

Competences

The students must have ability to:

  • Analyze, evaluate and model a given wireless communication problem
  • Assess and exploit the space domain, the multiple user dimensions - or other modern/advanced technologies, to provide additional degrees of freedom to the system design.
