Mobile Advanced Networks (MobAdv)

  • EURECOM: Spring 2008, Spring 2009
  • Description: This course would interest students who want to learn new standards of emerging and advanced wireless technologies used in future cellular, mesh, and adhoc networks as well as wireless sensor and actuators. It covers mainly the candidate applications and the network and transport layers by giving for each one of them the proposed protocols and techniques and standardisation and research efforts. The content of this course is organized as follows:
    • Broadband WiMAX networks: overview, applications and architecture; QoS management, mobility management in 802.16e, etc.
    • Wireless sensor networks: overview, applications and architecture; auto-organization techniques; data gathering mechanisms; reliable transport protocols; etc.
    • Wireless mesh networks: overview, applications and architecture; load balancing methods; channel assignment mechanisms; etc.
    • Wireless Vehicular Networks: introduction, applications and architectures, broadcast protocols, Delay-Tolerant Networks solutions for inter-vehicles and vehicle - infrastructure communications; etc.
    • Delay Tolerant Networks: introduction, applications and challenges: routing and transport in DTNs.

Mobile Applications and Services (MobServ)

I'm the responsible of this course which covers development techniques, tools, and languages for mobile applications as well as new emerging mobile services.
  • EURECOM: Fall 2004, Fall 2005, Fall 2006, Fall 2007, Fall 2008
  • Desciption: The goals of this course are twofold. First, it aims to give a detailed description of mobile services offered by cellular wireless networks as well as those provided by emerging broadband networks. To better understand the operations of these services, an overview about the evolution of wireless systems and their architectures are discussed at the beginning of this lecture. Second, this course targets the description of new emerging technologies and tools used to design and implement multimedia applications for mobile devices (cell phones, smatphones, PDAs, etc.) taking into account the technical constraints relative to storage capacity, processing capacity, display screen, communication interfaces, and user profiles.
