    7. Objectives, learning outcomes and obtained knowledge The main objective of this course is to teach the operation and technical paradigms of today’s modern mobile and wireless communication systems. Focus is on the prectical issues interesting for electrical engineers, such as: processes and basic operation of radio interfaces, hardware components and architecture of networking equipments. We also put emphasis on the practical implementation and the application of these in real products.
