Recommended Previous Knowledge:
- Lecture "Digital Communications"
- Lecture "Advanced Concepts of Wireless Communications"
Students have an overview of a variety of contemporary wireless systems of different size and complexity. They understand the technical solutions from the perspective of the physical and data link layer. They have developed a system view and are aware of the technical arguments, considering the respective applications and associated constraints. For several examples (e.g., Long Term Evolution, LTE), students are able to explain different concepts in a very deep technical detail.
Students have developed a system view. They can transfer their knowledge to evaluate other systems, not discussed in the lecture, and to understand the respective technical solutions. Given specific contraints and technical requirements, students are in a position to make proposals for certain design aspects by an appropriate assessment and the consideration of alternatives.
Students can jointly elaborate tasks in small groups and present their results in an adequate fashion.
Students are able to extract necessary information from given
literature sources and put it into the perspective of the lecture.
They can continuously check their level of expertise with the help
of accompanying measures (such as online tests, clicker questions,
exercise tasks) and, based on that, to steer their learning process
accordingly. They can relate their acquired knowledge to topics of
other lectures, e.g., "Digital Communications" and "Advanced Topics
of Wireless Communications".

Course: Modern Wireless Systems (Lecture)
The lecture gives an overview of contemporary wireless
communication concepts and related techniques from a system point
of view. For that purpose, different systems, ranging from Wireless
Personal to Wide Area Networks, are covered, mainly discussing the
physical and data link layer.
Systems under consideration include:
- ZigBee / IEEE 802.15.4
- IEEE 802.11 family
- Long Term Evolution (LTE) and LTE Advanced
A special focus is placed on 4th generation networks; in particular, an in-depth view into the technical principles of the Long Term Evolution (LTE / LTE Advanced ) standard is given, with an emphasis on multiple antenna techniques.

Course: Selected Topics of Modern Wireless Systems (Project-/problem-based Learning)
In this course, selected "hot" topics of modern wireless systems will be covererd. For that purpose, students work in groups to elaborate a given subject. The results will be presented in a poster session towards the end of the semester. Possible topics can include various system concepts and related technical principles, such as:
- 5G systems
- Millimeter wave communication
- Visible light communication
- Cooperative Multipoint
- Massive MIMO
- Massive machine-type communication
- Interference cancellation
- Non-orthogonal multiple access
- Heterogeneous networks
will be provided, depending on the given topics
