COMP 8531 - Special Topics in Wireless Mobile Applications

Computer Systems Part-time Studies Course

School of Computing and Academic Studies

Course Details

This course will cover a broad selection of topics in mobile computing architectures and protocols. Students will learn the principles of Mobile Computing and its enabling technologies, and explore solutions and paradigm shifts. The solutions and paradigm shifts address the issue of limited bandwidth and unreliability of wireless medium while taking advantage of mobility. The focus is on examining strategies and algorithms to achieve design goals such as performance, reliability, scalability, consistency and security in wireless mobile applications. The course will have a project component in which students will develop multimedia applications involving real-time communications as well as data storage for WLAN (Wireless Local Area Networks), WPAN (Wireless Personal Area Networks) or MANET (Mobile Ad-hoc Networks) platforms.
