The required textbooks for the course are 移动互联网导论, 王新兵, 清华大学出版社, 2015 or Wireless Communication Networks and Systems, by Corry Beard and William Stallings, Pearson, 2015.
These will not cover all the material in the book, but slides are detailed.

For background material on networks, you can use Computer Networking: A Top-Down Approach, Jim Kurose and Keith Ross, Addison Wesley, and Computer Networks, Andrew Tanenbaum and David Wetherall, Prentice Hall.


Your final grade for the course will be based on the following weights for the individual assignments:

  • 20% 3 Quizzes
  • 10% Project 1
  • 20% + 10% Project 2
  • 20% Midterm
  • 30% Final Exam

Project 1 is individual and project 2 is team-based. In project 2 you need to implement an ad hoc routing protocol. You need to deal with the unpredictable nature of wireless links and with mobility.
