Introduction to Professional Wireless Communications - Live Online Course on 13 July

Introduction to Professional Wireless Communications - Live Online Course on 13 July
Introduction to Professional Wireless Communications
 
13 July 2016 | 9:00am to 4:30pm EDT 
Online course via WebEx • $250 IEEE ComSoc member • $280 IEEE member • $330 non-member 
 
In this exciting introduction to the world of wireless communications, you’ll learn the fundamentals of what these technologies can do and what wireless communications professionals on the engineering front are working on developing for future applications. This course is a great way to refresh your knowledge with an overview of wireless telecommunications technologies, networks, services, and standards.
 
This course may be used as an introductory resource for candidates pursuing IEEE’s WCET professional certification.

By the completion of the course, you will be able to identify the difference between:
  • Wireless and Mobile
  • Wireless and Fixed Networks
  • Macro-cells, Micro-cells, Pico-cells, and Femtocells
  • Packet Switching vs. Circuit Switching
  • Cellular Network Generations [1G; 2G (GSM and FDMA/TDMA); 2.5G (GPRS); 3G (UMTS; CDMA); 3.5G (HSPDA; HSPA+); Almost 4G (LTE; OFDMA); 4G (LTE Advanced)]
Key learning topics include:
  • Wireless usage, history
  • Electromagnetic spectrum, propagation, antennas
  • Modulation and access methods
  • Network protocols and layers
  • Elements of wireless telecommunication networks
  • Understanding of the systems, protocols, and mechanisms needed to support mobility in communications
  • Wireless generations 1G, 2G, 3G, 4G
  • Wireless Standards: GSM/UMTS/LTE, 802.11/WiFi,...
  • Types of Telecommunications Networks: Cellular, Vehicular, Sensors, RFID, Satellite, ...
  • Service evolution
  • Mobile applications development
  • HW and SW in Smartphones and other mobile platforms
  • Content distribution networks
Your instructor, Mr. Vishloff, is the principal engineer in a wireless consultancy focused on cellular-based M2M solutions and short-range wireless products. He has over 30 years of experience in wireless systems and product design. 
 
What our participants say:
 
"Great job of summarizing such a large topic as wireless communication and mobile devices, definitions, and system overviews." ~Steve Kaleta, PE
 
"With all the history, technologies and claims, it’s good to put a complex subject in perspective. Lee provided a clear picture to current technologies, but also a brief originating history, enough relevant technical depth, connection/operating descriptions supporting migration of systems and common sense based personal/professional insights. That’s not an easy thing to do." ~Joe L.

White Paper on Flexible Mobile Client

White Paper on Flexible Mobile Client
 
Flexible Mobile Client / UE Emulation for Prototyping Next-Generation Wireless Systems
 
Abstract: 
 
As the wireless world designs new networks, the need for researchers to build prototypes to prove their concepts in real-world scenarios in real-world conditions takes center stage. Building a working prototype has now become an even more important step along the development trajectory. And the faster wireless innovators can realize a working system and undeniably prove the efficacy or feasibility of a particular concept or design, the faster everyone can benefit from these new innovations. This article explains NI’s prototyping platform for wireless communications and its application as a UE emulator in the 5G proof-of-concept system that leading researchers developed.
