Topic outline

  • General description

    This course aims to enable the student to identify the types of fading that exist within a wireless channel, and thus, to find the appropriate channel model to be used in order to study the system performance and to determine system parameters that ensures best reliability and availability of the whole system. Also, the course aims to give the student with the required knowledge to be able to identify the system capacity and limits; using this knowledge, the student should be able to characterize the wireless channel and so find the best conditions that causes the best performance using the available resources. On the other hand, upon finishing this course, the student will be able to suggest the best solution for each impairment in the communication channel. Intended Learning Outcomes - Radio spectrum utilization - Fading and wireless channel properties - Wireless channel modeling - Diversity and MIMO systems - Improving wireless systems performance - Wireless systems planning and analysis
