Wireless networking is a framework for using radio signals to transmit data between various devices and systems. A mobile network or cellular network is a wireless network designed to use radio signals for data over a wide geographic area. Telecommunications companies have installed cellular voice and data networks over most of the populated areas of the planet thus allowing mobile phones and other wireless devices to be connected to the public switched telephone network and public internet from almost anywhere on the globe. In this course students will explore the design and implementation of wireless and mobile networks. Topics covered include: Bluetooth, induction wireless, infrared wireless (IrDA), ultra wideband (UWB), microwave, Multichannel Multipoint Distribution Service (MMDS), FSO (free space optics), Wi-Fi, WiMax (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access), satellite, cellular networks, Global System for Mobile Communication (GSM), 3G and 4G (third and fourth generation mobile network), wireless and mobile security, global area networks (GAN), and sensor networks.
