    7. Objectives, learning outcomes and obtained knowledge

    Based on the theoretical background presented in Communications Theory, this subject introduces the fundamental methods applied in wideband wireless communications and broadcasting systems, covering the following main topics.


    The first topic covers some special aspects of digital communications, including spectrally efficient coding procedures (higher-order digital modulations ― MQAM, continuous phase modulations ― CPM, multi-carrier methods ― OFDM, FBMC), coded modulation systems, spread spectrum systems (for both constatnt and variable rate services), as well as multiple access systems (CDMA, FDMA, TDMA, SDMA) and multi-user receive techniques.


    The second topic introduces the properties of transmission media, giving an overview of the characteristics of terrestrial and satellite microwave media, terrestrial and satellite mobile, fixed and broadcasting radio channels (e.g. WSSUS), also covering point-to-point and point-multi point (e.g. MIMO) systems.


    The third topic is the presentation of special systems and devices, including terrestrial and satellite broadcasting and communications systems, such as DAB, DVB and DRM, as well as wideband and fixed wireless access (BFWA) networks, together with the aspects of the convergence of cellular and broadcasting networks (SDR, LTE, 5G, DVB IP, DVB RCT/S/C).


    The fouth topic gives an in-depth overview of the measuring technology of state-of-the-art digital broadcasting and communications systems, detailing their time and frequency domain properties, covering also modulation analysis, as well as bit error and packer error rate related issues. The baseband representation, as well as the modeling and simulation of these systems is also introduced, in addition to the generation of real and complex signals with given stochastic parameters along with simulation-based estimation of system parameters.


    By the end of the semester, the students will develop skills which enable them to design, model and investigate the fundamental (physical-layer related) properties of the emerging wideband fixed, cellular and broadcasting systems.
