The lectures give overview of fundamental principles of wireless networks in various areas of their application. Students will understand architecture, principles and protocols used in different wireless technologies and learn how these technologies can be exploited in real world applications. The goal is to teach students how to solve problems related to deployment of wireless networks, their operation or development of wireless networks components.

Students must have fundamental knowledge of modulations, coding techniques and multiple access methods for wireless networks. Furthermore, they must understand to components of a communication chain, signal propagation and radio channel characteristics (attenuation, gain, interference, noise) and characteristics of spectrum and signals (mean value, energy, power, correlation, etc.).
