2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

Internet of Things (IoT) consists of smart devices that communicate with each other, enabling these devices to collect and exchange data efficiently. Wireless communications is the core enabling technology for IoT deployment. This subject covers the fundamentals of wireless transmission and protocols for IoT communications networks. You will study the various physical layer issues and impairments, error correcting codes, digital modulation techniques, and multiple access techniques in modern wireless communications systems. In depth analysis will be on fourth generation (4G) cellular technology with Long Term Evolution (LTE) and its enhancement LTE-Advanced technologies.
