TELECOMMUNICATIONS DESIGN

ELE5TDE

2019

Credit points: 30

Subject outline

Students learn the key principles and technologies for mobile wireless standards.The economic aspects of telecommunication systems will also be covered. Students learn the process of planning and design of cellular mobile radio base station networks.  Students gain in-depth knowledge and practical approach in dimensioning base station cell sites, including antenna selection, radio coverage, and interference analysis. Upon successful completion of this subject, students will be able to use a cellular planning software tool for planning, design and operation of cellular mobile radio base station networks.

Graduate capabilities & intended learning outcomes

01. Demonstrate knowledge on key principles and technologies of modern wireless standards.

Activities:
Lecture, laboratories where student will be required to set up the simulation parameters to reflect the radio interface and the radio frequency environment.

02. Analyse and design the technical parameters of cellular base station

Activities:
Lecture, laboratories where student will be required to perform simulations to investigate the effect of changing the parameters of the base stations on propagation characteristics.

03. Simulate RF coverage characteristics of base stations

Activities:
Laboratories where student will be required to perform simulations on to determine the coverage characteristics of cellular base stations giving the topology and morphology of the region.

04. Apply the cell planning process to design a network of base stations.

Activities:
Laboratories where students will be required to optimally place the location of the base stations and determine suitable operating characteristics of the base stations to satisfy prescribed design requirements.
