Wireless networks have fundamentally different properties than typical wired networks, including higher error rates, lower bandwidths, non-uniform transmission characteristics, increased susceptibility to interference and eavesdropping, and higher variability of performance. Similarly, mobile nodes (computers and mobile devices) behave differently and have fundamentally different limitations than stationary nodes. This course provides a basic introduction to wireless networking and mobile computing. The lecture gives an introduction into principles, standards and solutions for mobile communication and its applications within the area of mobile computing. The course mainly covers a wide range of theoretical concepts and practical application which includes the foundation of wireless network and mobile computing, Radio Frequency, IEEE 802.11, Wireless LANS, Cellular Networks, Mobile application development, Wireless Mobility and Security, and the advance technology on wireless sensor and mesh networks.
