Introduction: Mobile Communication Networks enable people to communicate on the go, anywhere, anytime. In this course you will learn the fundamental techniques for the design and analysis of mobile communication Networks. The course deals with the fundamental physical layer and MAC layer principles and system level study of modern wireless communication systems. Wireless systems and standards like GSM, GPRS, IS-95, CDMA-2000, WCDMA, UMTS, HSPA, and LTE will be studied from system level perspective. In addition, Wireless Networks like IEEE 802.11 a/b/g, IEEE 802.16d/e . This is an industry-oriented course. Final Year Engineering students, Post Graduate students, Faculty Members from academia and professionals related to cellular and wireless industry will find it a useful course, to understand these systems and apply knowledge/ skills in real-life

Major topics to be covered:

1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
