Section Description

Wireless networks are everywhere in our world, one laptops, smartphones, sensor and the new IoT devices popping up everywhere. Understanding how wireless networks work and why they break is the key to their successful deployment and integration. In the first half of this class, we focus on the basics of wireless networking, from the physical transmission of radio signals to the impact of lossy communication on higher layer routing and transport protocols. The second half of the class is dedicated to student let topics, including sensor networks, IoT, security and privacy, energy conservation and general performance improving techniques. Over the course of the semester, students design and implement a group project using a variety of wireless devices and technologies, ending with a project report and a poster presentation of their work.
