NWIT 274 - Advanced Wireless Communications

(G only)

Builds on the technology taught in NWIT 229 . The course covers advanced modulation and demodulation (amplitude, frequency, pulse, and digital), coding and decoding, channels, multiplexing and access technology, sampling techniques, PAM, TDM, CDMA, TDMA, GSM, EVDO, IPBH, DS0, DS1, DS3, OC3, OC12, microwave, cellular call flow, wireless performance such as signal level and error rate, keying, and transmission media. Students use oscilloscopes, signal generators, spectrum analyzers, and the Telecommunications Instructional Modeling System (TIMS). The course also covers Wi-Fi to include base-band, broadband, and Multi-channel Multipoint Distribution Service (MNMDS). PREREQUISITE(S): NWIT 229 . Four hours each week. Formerly NW 274.

4 semester hours

Course Outcomes:
Upon course completion, a student will be able to:

  • Demonstrate successfully the ability to use advanced techniques in Modulation and demodulation.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of clear and noisy channels, channel capacity, digital compression and modulation, multiplexing, and access technology.
  • Recognize coding efficiency, information transfer rate, signaling rate (BAUD), sampling techniques, the system capacity, and error coding and band width considerations.
  • Demonstrate successfully an understanding of the new wireless technologies and concepts.
  • Demonstrate their capability to interpret ASK, FSK, PSK, QAM, CDMA, W-CDMA, TDMA, GSM, PCS, CDPD and third generation technologies.
  • Demonstrate clearly an ability to use oscilloscopes, signal generators, spectrum analyzers, and the TIMS.
