Networks are of an increasing importance in commerce, education and culture and absorb an ever-increasing share of the national budget as there is an expectation that we will be able to connect to any online environment through a medium of our choice at any location. This course will provide students with the knowledge to model protocols and standards used in networks and wireless communication systems and how to ensure continuity of service. This course will equip students with the insight needed for a career in communications technology.

This course focuses on wireless communication technology as used in mobile phone networks, including 4G and 5G and the series of standards associated with wireless local area networks.
