 E2 302 Next Generation Wireless Systems: Design and Analysis

The goal of this advanced research course is to introduce students to the underlying theory, design techniques, and analytical tools for understanding and improving next generation wireless systems. A course will focus on beyond third generation (B3G) cellular standards such as Long Term Evolution (LTE) and IEEE 802.16 WiMAX. The course will first develop the basics required to understand the physical layer of B3G systems. This includes performance analysis of digital communication systems over fading channels, rate and power adaptation, multi-user diversity techniques, and OFDM and OFDMA. It will then cover the LTE standard, its air interface, physical and logical channels, and physical layer procedures. Thereafter, advanced technologies that are likely to impact B3G standards such as cooperative communications and cognitive radio will be covered through a survey of research papers. Students will form teams of two and pick some sub-topics related to LTE and beyond LTE technologies to study in detail. Each team will then make a 1 hour presentation that gives an overview of the current design, why it was so done, and whether there are or were alternatives.
