This course is a research-oriented course and is prepared to stimulate students' critical thinking and analysis. It presents both the single-hop and multi-hop wireless networks with particular focus on mesh, vehicular, delay-tolerant, and sensor networking. The course emphasizes on the fundamental building blocks used in the current state-of-the-art architectures, protocols, and algorithms. Open research issues are also discussed during this course.
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.Prerequisites
Knowledge of standard cellular systems (2G/3G/4G) is desirable.Grading Scheme Important
The final grade will be the best of : 20% homework + 80% Final exam OR 20% homework + 40% Final exam + 40% case study.
