This course explains the IEEE 1906.1-2015 - Recommended Practice for Nanoscale and Molecular Communication Framework standard. It includes an introduction to theoretical background as well as practical implementation and use-cases. Successful completion of this course will enable one to apply the standard to improve interoperability of simulation modules and actual system components.
A precise description of what a nanoscale communication network is and the minimum requirements to define it are provided. A framework for nanoscale communication networks is specified using universal building blocks. The 20 standard metrics for nanoscale communication networks will be covered in-depth. A reference model in the network simulation 3 (ns-3) is discussed to provide a practical embodiment of the standard. Finally, use-cases of the standard are described to provide practical examples of applications of the standard.
Who Should Attend
This course is of interest to anyone looking to move from “one-time, throw-away” simulation modules or components to those that will be leveraged by others and become part of viable systems. This course is also of interest to those looking to leverage interoperable components developed by others into their own systems. Finally, this course benefits those making their nanoscale systems interoperable with those of others.
Prerequisites: Basic knowledge of network simulation-3 (ns-3) or similar simulation tools is encouraged, but not required.
Course Level: Intermediate

By the end of this course you are expected to have:
- The ability to define a nanoscale communication network. This is more complex than it may at first appear because there are fine distinctions that separate communication at different scales.
- An understanding of the fundamental framework for a nanoscale communication network. In other words, how such a communication network is sliced and diced in order to facilitate construction and inter-operability.
- An understanding of the minimum required description of a nanoscale communication network.
- An understanding of why standard metrics for nanoscale communication networks are defined and what the metrics are.
- An understanding of how nanoscale communication is used including use-cases for such networks.
- An understand of the standard reference implementation and how it can be leveraged.
- Be prepared to propose future extensions to the standard. The standard provides a solid, common base upon which more specific nanoscale communication systems can be defined.
