    Wireless communication l.jpg
    Wireless Communication

    • Transmitting voice and data using electromagnetic waves in open space

    • Electromagnetic waves

      • Travel at speed of light (c = 3x108 m/s)

      • Has a frequency (f) and wavelength (l)

        • c = f x l

    • Higher frequency means higher energy photons

    • The higher the energy photon the more penetrating is the radiation

    Wavelength of Some Technologies

    • GSM Phones:

      • frequency ~= 900 Mhz

      • wavelength ~= 33cm

    • PCS Phones

      • frequency ~= 1.8 Ghz

      • wavelength ~= 17.5 cm

    • Bluetooth:

      • frequency ~= 2.4Gz

      • wavelength ~= 12.5cm

    Ibrahim Korpeoglu

    Frequency carries channels l.jpg
    Frequency Carries/Channels

    • The information from sender to receiver is carrier over a well defined frequency band.

      • This is called a channel

    • Each channel has a fixed frequency bandwidth (in KHz) and Capacity (bit-rate)

    • Different frequency bands (channels) can be used to transmit information in parallel and independently.

    Ibrahim Korpeoglu

    Example l.jpg

    • Assume a spectrum of 90KHz is allocated over a base frequency b for communication between stations A and B

    • Assume each channel occupies 30KHz.

    • There are 3 channels

    • Each channel is simplex (Transmission occurs in one way)

    • For full duplex communication:

      • Use two different channels (front and reverse channels)

      • Use time division in a channel

    Station A

    Channel 1 (b - b+30)

    Station B

    Channel 2 (b+30 - b+60)

    Channel 3 (b+60 - b+90)

    Ibrahim Korpeoglu

    Homework 1 l.jpg
    Homework 1

    • Read and digest the following papers!

      • M. Weiser, The Computer for the Twenty-First Century, Scientific American, Vol. 265, No. 3, (September 1991), pp. 94-104.

      • D. Cox, Wireless Personal Communications: What is It?, IEEE Personal Communications Magazine, (April 1995), pp. 20-35.

        • These papers are on the course webpage!

    Ibrahim Korpeoglu

    Simplex communication l.jpg
    Simplex Communication

    • Normally, on a channel, a station can transmit only in one way.

      • This is called simplex transmision

  • To enable two-way communication (called full-duplex communication)

    • We can use Frequency Division Multiplexing

    • We can use Time Division Multiplexing

  • Ibrahim Korpeoglu

    A singe frequency channel is used. The channel is divided into time slots. Mobile station and base station transmits on the time slots alternately.

    What is mobility l.jpg
    What is Mobility Radio Service

    • Initially Internet and Telephone Networks is designed assuming the user terminals are static

      • No change of location during a call/connection

      • A user terminals accesses the network always from a fixed location

  • Mobility and portability

    • Portability means changing point of attachment to the network offline

    • Mobility means changing point of attachment to the network online
