Students must have fundamental knowledge of modulations, coding techniques and multiple access methods for wireless networks. Furthermore, they must understand to components of a communication chain, signal propagation and radio channel characteristics (attenuation, gain, interference, noise) and characteristics of spectrum and signals (mean value, energy, power, correlation, etc.).


Wireless technologies, Internet of Things (IoT), Vehicular communications
