Anotation:

The goal of the course is to teach the student to design basic types of wireless links from the antennas and propagation point of view, including interference analyses for both fixed links and radio networks and frequency coordination. The design principles are primarily based on international ITU-R recommendations. In addition, the attention is given to prospective wireless systems as well, e.g., intelligent antenna systems.
