INFSY 564 Wireless Networks (3)
INFSY 564 is a follow-up course to INFSY 560, Data Communications and Networking. The objective of the course is that students gain an understanding of wireless networks beyond what can be taught in an introductory course. Although the course is designed to appeal primarily to MSIS students, it is expected that the more technically minded MBA will find the course valuable. Upon successful completion of this course, the student will have an in depth understanding of standards and technology and will be able to decide which forms of wireless are appropriate for various applications. The course covers selection of wireless platforms, design methods, potential impairments and methods to evaluate the throughput of the network. Using a wireless lab, the students will be involved in throughput experiments and analysis of errors and the impact of the errors on application throughput. Students will be required to complete a network design that requires synthesis of their knowledge of transmission techniques, equipment location, security concerns and bandwidth requirements.
Note : Class size, frequency of offering, and evaluation methods will vary by location and instructor. For these details check the specific course syllabus.
