UNIK4700 - Building Mobile and Wireless Networks

News Lectures on Tuesday afternoon, each autumn
Organisation ITS
by Josef Noll, Maghsoud Morshedi

Abstract The course provides knowledge on how to build networks, based on radio characteristics, mobile and wireless systems, propagation characteristics. Hands-on experiences with radio communications are used to complement the theory.
Objective (max 350 words) Objectives to be updated, see info. This course is extending the knowledge of students into the areas of radio communications and should thus be seen as a supplement to high-frequency directional radio links and mobile radio evolutions. Focus in this course will be on radio links for personal and mobile devices covering from some cm (contactless, short range) up to some 10 meters (wireless area). The second half of the course will specific topics in building networks. Topics include: (i), Principles of radio propagation and radio interaction, (ii) Research topics in contactless, short-range and wireless radio networks, (iii) Remote management of wireless networks, and (iv) Evaluation of mobile and wireless communication systems for emerging economies.

The main goal of the course is to work with scientific literature and analyse advantages and weaknesses of suggested approaches. Students will be asked to select topics, work through the related literature, perform an analysis of the literature, present the results towards the other students and discuss the advantages and shortcomings.This introductory work is mandatory for the participants, as it forms the basis for a home work, analysing selected topics in dedicated areas. The home work will be a report, and contributes to the final grade. Simulations, e.g. network throughput, business aspects or implementation work is the second topic relevant for the final grade. Participants will learn how to evaluate network, and analyse specific radio interfaces for the purpose.

For assignments to be presented during the course, please visit typical topics at UNIK4700:Assignments

UNIK4700/UNIK9700 will slightly change the style of the course in 2018

  • The first homework will be a paper evaluation and presentation of scientific papers (20%)
  • Thereafter groups will be established to focus on one of the four topics (40%)
1. Mobile coverage, capacity and cost aspects of future mobile and wireless networks
2. UiO owns the access network, the model of a provider having just an access network, and collaborates with operators on handling the core network.
3. Internet light for all, providing free access to information for everyone. Examples might be the DigI.BasicInternet.no project on Digital health in TZ.
4. Wireless Network management for future services
  • We will have an exam contributing to 40% of the total results.
