Wednesday, February 8, 2012 at 3:00 p.m. in the Marvin K. Peterson Library


The evolution of wireless network technologies has gone through an exponential era of improvements and adjustments in the past decade or two. The quantity and quality of research in wireless technologies we have witnessed in the past two decades could easily surpass those during the century prior to that. In this presentation, we cover the natural evolution of wireless technologies, including standards progression in various releases of WiMAX and LTE within the ITU, 3GPP, IEEE, and other wireless standard bodies.

Emphasis will be given to Physical, MAC, Network, and Application layer enhancements in the latest 3G and 4G technologies, including topics such as Network Architecture, Quality of Service (QoS) provisioning, Radio Resource Management (RRM) techniques, Security protocols, and wireless network integration technologies.
