Learners enrolled: 1643   |  Exam registration: 60
This course will provide a basic introduction to a wireless communication system. Starting with the large scale propagation models, the students will study the modelling of wireless channel as a linear time varying filter, statistical multipath models and wireless Digital Modulation/ Digital Demodulation techniques. The performance of the digital modulation techniques in Rayleigh fading channel and additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) will also be studied. This course will also introduce students to channel capacity in non-fading and fading channel conditions, multiple access techniques, cellular standards from 2G to 5G along with Wireless Local area networks (WLAN) standards from IEEE 802.11a to IEEE 802.11ax.

Instructor bio

Prof. Vivek Ashok Bohara

Prof.Vivek Ashok Bohara received the Ph.D. degree from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, in 2011. From 2011 to 2013, he was a Postdoctoral Researcher (Marie Curie fellowship) in ESIEE Paris, University Paris-East where he was actively involved in designing and implementing critical blocks for wideband RF transmitters. Specifically, he proposed numerous green communication techniques to reduce power consumption and increase efficiency of nonlinear high power amplifiers used in RF transmitters. In 2013, he joined IIIT-Delhi, India, where he is currently Professor and Head, Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering. He has authored and coauthored over 100 publications in major IEEE/IET journals and refereed international conferences, two book chapters, and three patents. Dr. Bohara also supervises the Wirocomm Research Lab at IIIT Delhi which deals with state of the art research in wireless communication and allied area and is also the co-founding faculty member for Li-Fi Centre of excellence @ IIIT-Delhi which is supported by India-EU standardization project. His research interests are next-generation communication technologies such as Visible Light Communication (VLC), hybrid RF-VLC communication, integration of optical communication with intelligent reflective surfaces (IRS), UAV, and vehicular communication. prof.Bohara received First Prize in National Instruments ASEAN Virtual Instrumentation Applications Contest in 2007 and 2010. He was also the recipient of the Best Paper Award at the IEEE ANTS 2022 and the best poster and demo awards at IEEE Comsnets 2016 and 2023 conferences respectively.
