Catalog Data: 20-CS-597. 3 credits. Lecture meets 2.5 hours/week. This course introduces basic concepts for
wireless communication of both voice and data information. Many underlying system issues related
to mobility support and channel allocation will be covered. Wireless communication using satellites
will also be covered. Discussions on ad hoc and sensor networks will also help understand why they
are useful. In addition, a group simulation project would require implementation of a concept in
wireless and mobile communication technology.
