The final exam will be from 18:30 to 20:30 on July 29, in 理教407


This course introduces fundamental concepts of wireless networks. Lectures provides an introduction to the wireless physical and MAC layer, presented in a way that is accessible for students with only a computer systems background, discuss wireless MAC mechanisms, and describe commonly used wireless data communication standards and applications. Topics include OSI, wireless challenges, 802.11 MAC, MIMO, Adhoc and mesh, vehicular wireless, Internet and DTN, cellular, PAN, sensor networks. RFID and localization.

The goal is for students to learn the unique challenges in wireless networking, gain an understanding of wireless technologies at the physical, MAC, and higher layers and get experience in working with wireless networks.Evaluation is based on 4 quizzes, 2 projects, one mid-term exam and one final exam.


This course assumes you have taken an “Introduction to Computer Systems” course(For example based on the O’Hallaron and Bryant book). We will also build on basic networking and signals but the course includes introductory material on these topics.

For programming experience, you need to have knowledge in C/C++ programming for the project.
