Module Details of Wireless and Mobile Communication


Introduction and basics of
Mobile radio propagation

Evolution of mobile radio communication, Different generations of
wireless communication and their specifications, Mobile radio
propagation and wireless channel models-free space propagation,
reflection, diffraction and scattering of radio signals, Doppler shift,
Path loss and shadowing, Multipath propagation and impulse
response model, Statistical fading models-Narrowband and wideband
fading models, Different parameters of fading channels-rms delay
spread and coherence bandwidth, Doppler spread and coherence
time, Flat and frequency selective fading, Slow fading and fast
fading, Level crossing rate (LCR) and Average fade duration (AFD),
Link budget design.
Hands-on: Path-loss and shadowing, Rayleigh and Rician fading,


Cellular radio communication
systems and Multiple access

Cellular concept-Cellular system fundamental, frequency reuse,
channel assignment, handoff, Interference and system capacity,
Improving system capacity and cell coverage, Multiple access
techniques-Frequency division multiple access (FDMA), Time division
multiple access (TDMA), Code division multiple access (CDMA)
and Space division multiple access (SDMA), Examples of practical
cellular radio systems.
Hands-on: Capacity of cellular systems with co-channel interference
for varying cluster size.


Digital communication over
fading channels, diversity
equalization and channel

Non-coherent and coherent reception; error probability of common
modulation schemes for uncoded transmission, Receiver diversity
selection combining (SC), equal gain combining (EGC) and maximal
ratio combining (MRC), Transmit diversity, Introduction to space
time codes, Linear and decision feedback equalizers, Linear block
codes and convolution codes
Hands-on: Error probability of common modulation schemes in
Rayleigh fading, SC and MRC, Zero forcing (ZF) and Minimum mean
square error (MMSE) equalizer.


Spread spectrum, Multi
carrier and MIMO wireless

Spread spectrum-Spread Spectrum Principles, Direct Sequence Spread
