T Technical Teaching


  • The course MobAdv would interest students who want to learn emerging adhoc wireless networks including mesh, sensor, vehicular, and delay-tolerent networks as well as the fundamental building blocks used in the current state-of-the-art architectures, protocols, and algorithms. It is designed to stimulated students' critical thinking and analysis through discussions on open research issues and depth case study.
  • It covers mainly the candidate applications and the network layer by giving for each one of them the proposed protocols and techniques and standardization and research efforts.
  • This course starts by presenting a brief introduction on graph-based network modelling followed by  broadcasting, (Geo-)routing, and multicasting techniques. Then different topology control algorithms and network clustering schemes are described. Impact of different mobility and traffic patterns on the performance of protocols are analyzed and compared. Finally, advanced topics such as cross-layer design, QoS support and node cooperation are discussed.
