Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to optimize traffic flows in mobile cellular networks. He can evaluate the interactions between nodes in the core of a mobile network (data/signaling level). The student knows and can analyze signaling procedures on radio and core links in mobile networks.


Subject of course

The student will gain knowledge in 2G / 3G and 4G Core Networks, Software Defined Networks.

Specifically, a student shall be able to optimize traffic flows in mobile cellular networks. He can evaluate the interactions between nodes in the core of a mobile network (data/signaling level). The student knows and can analyze signaling procedures on radio and core links in mobile networks.

In the area of M2M, D2D, and LTE-M the student will learn to calculate the impact of massive M2M rollout in LTE networks. The student shall be able to use modulated Markov Processes for calculation of M2M traffic.
        
The student shall be able to use source traffic models (Markov Chains, Heavy Tails, ...) to solve a certain problem. He can compare traffic models for SRD to mobile cellular networks and name the difference and impacts as well as compare traffic models for LRD to SDR. He can quantize the impact of heavy tails in mobile networks.

The student knows the differences between Passive / Active Performance Monitoring and can apply this knowledge to solve a given scenario. He can explain the Pro/Cons of Active/Passive Monitoring. He can implement the setup of a passive monitoring system for mobile cellular networks. The student shall be able to define an IP layer benchmarks in any reactive, e.g., mobile cellular networks and analyze comparable QoS, QoE and KPI elements of such a result.

The student shall be able to identify the parts necessary for a Cross-Layer Optimization in a mobile cellular network. He can compare different approaches and explain the functions of each level.

The student can apply methods for Error Resilient Video Coding in mobile cellular networks.

 

Teaching methods

The basic key elements of this lecture will the thought in a frontal presentation.

In addition to this we will use methods of interactive learning, e.g., flipped classroom. The students will be asked to apply the current knowledge onto practical problems with the support of online tools.

Tasks of cooperative, problem oriented teaching is added in regular intervals.

Mode of examination

Written and oral
