Upon completion of the course students will understand the problems and solutions of IP implementation in mobile communication systems. They will have extensive theoretical knowledge about 4G mobile networks. Students will have the ability to analyse specific requirements for multimedia transmission over IP mobile networks, and they will be able to develop error-resilient techniques to overcome wireless channel limitations.
- interpret basic terms in IP mobile communication
- compare wireless networks and technologies
