The aim of the course is three-fold:
Connect different technologies within the telecommunications area to a complete radio system design, optimized for a realistic transmission channel.
Put a focus on the total cost in order of components, complexity and energy for systems with large number of components, such as IOT-networks.
Illustrate different system and design compromises, such as the trade off between spectrum efficiency, system performance, system cost and energy consumption. This is done with the practical implementation in mind.
Introduce models and show how theoretical analysis, computer simulations and empirical measurements can be used in combination.
