This course is intended to give students an outline of how wireless communication and computer networks work "above the physical layer". This includes the interoperability of wireless networks such as WiMax/GPRS and WiFi to provide WiFi on trains etc. How wireless sensor networks gather and report physical parameters including body sensor networks. We also look at the evolution of cell phone networks from 2G to 5G and beyond.
