Wireless Communications and Future Applications (22 - 23 June 2006)
The convergence between the worlds of Mobile and the Internet are driving the emergence of 3G and WLAN access technologies. This presents not only great opportunities for the future of "Telecomms unplugged", but also great challenges in understanding the relative position of different technologies in this future. Included here with cellular technologies would be Wireless LANs (802.11 from a to x), Bluetooth, Ultra-wideband and WiMax - the new broadband wireless access technologies.
This course reviews the technical strength and weakness of these key radio access technologies and considers future applications and services that they might enable. It also looks at the economic value created in order to understand the relative position of each in the future roadmap of wireless access.
A comprehensive understanding of this area positions the future for 4th generation mobility.
