Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to understand the basics in mobile communications, i.e., how to describe a time variant channel, which influences occur during a data transmission and how to mitigate them.

Subject of course

Introduction into wireless and mobile communications, as well as example problems and system concepts. Mobile propagation channel characteristics. Cellular system design. Fundamental trade-offs in  latency, reliability, and data rate. Introduction into system concepts and 3G/4G network architectures: Connection setup, transmit power control, adaptive modulation and coding, handover concepts including associated protocols and control channels. Integration of data- and speech services. Antenna and antenna arrays: components and properties. Coding, modulation und transmission schemes. channel characterisation: Fading mechanisms, doubly selective propagation channels and their signal- and system theory (shadowing, multipath propagation, Doppler spread, WSSUS assumption, scattering function). 

Teaching methods

Methods of linear algebra as should be known from the lectures signal processing 1 and 2 are applied to decribe formally signals as well as systems in wireless communications.

Mode of examination

Oral

Additional information

This course is based on the VU Mobile Communications (LVA 389.063) which was part of the former master curriculum Telecommunications (Study Code 066 437).
