Lernergebnisse:By successfully attending this module, students achieve a deeper understanding of specific challenges and security solutions in the area of mobile communication systems that advances their level of understanding significantly beyond the lectures „Grundlagen der Rechnernetze“ and „Fortgeschrittene Konzepte der Rechnernetze“. Recent research topics in mobile communications are discussed based on current scientific publications and by that the course also introduces students into the skills required to work with and discuss about scientific literature. The lab recapitulates the topics of the lecture with a more practical approach and also verifies learned knowledge in more theoretical assignments. At the same time, the lab also includes practical hands-on exercises where students have the opportunity to apply the learned knowledge on real mobile communication systems.                   
Inhalt:The lecture is composed of three major blocks. Part one introduces important foundations of wireless communication including radio wave characteristics, fundamental laws like Nyquist and Shannon-Hartley, but also basics of modulation and encoding. Part two discusses architecture and protocols of established wireless communication systems such as WLAN, cellular networks (GSM, 3G, LTE), Bluetooth, or RFID. Finally, part three provides insights into recent research topics in mobile communication, e.g., VANETs or Wireless Sensor Networks.
