Subject of course

The most important technologies of fifth generation mobile communication systems will be discussed. In addition, some important basis technologies of fourth generation systems will be presented.


Teaching methods

The contents of the lecture will be provided via TUWEL using short video-lessons (10-20 min per lesson). In addition live question-and-answer sessions will be offered.

Each lesson will be followed by a short multple-choice test, to verify comprehension of the contents.

In addition, short papers and texts will be provided as a reading homework. Comprehension of the contents of these homeworks will again be checked using multiple-choice tests. If required, these papers/texts will also be discussed in live video sessions.

Matlab-examples will help to demonstrate important concepts introduced throughput the lecture.
