The course is taught in English. This course introduces the most relevant state-of-the-art techniques used in modern wireless and wired communication systems, and presents some of the most important international telecom standards and applications, like 4G and upcoming 5G. The course is focused on the system physical layer. The different techniques are analyzed with the aim of understanding their impact on different applications, and their possible evolution. This course is useful for all students interested to digital transmission, both in the Communications and Computer Networks Engineering Degree and in the Electronic Engineering Degree.

At the end of this course, the students know the key characteristics of the considered communication systems, the most advanced techniques used for wireless and wired systems, and the practical scenarios and applications where they are used. In particular, they have an in-depth knowledge of the physical layer constituent blocks of: OFDM-based systems, 4G-LTE mobile networks, new 5G systems. This way, the students will develop the ability to contribute to the design and the management of these state-of-the-art telecom systems.

Modalità di esame: prova scritta;
Written exam on course’s topics (usually two hours and six questions, no books, no notes, maximum mark = 30 cum laude). The assessment is made of six questions randomly extracted from a list prepared at the end of the course. Questions reflects key understandings the students should possess on the key properties of the of the studied systems, the constituent blocks of their physical layer, and their most important applications.
