Intended learning outcomes *
- designa och utvärdera enkla trådlösa nät i både termer av täckning och kapacitet.
Upon completion of the course, the student will be able to:
- characterize fading multi-path radio channels in terms of Doppler spectrum, coherence time, power delay profile, and coherence bandwidth.
- distinguish the difference between large-scale fading and small-scale fading.
- describe and explain the effects of fading multi-path channels on the link performance of wireless communication systems.
- provide possible solutions to the problem of signal fading in wireless communication links. Describe different types of diversity and how they improve performance for mobile radio channels.
- apply propagation models and design basic radio communication links with respect to signal-to-noise ratio and outage probabilities. Special emphasis is given to propagation models for mobile and portable wireless communication.
- plan and analyze simple wireless networks in terms of coverage and capacity.
