1 - During the 5G course, you will learn about the main trends for the next generation mobile communication. LTE to 5G conversion, backwards compatibility, main technologies and approaches will be discussed.
The course offers four tracks: data and signal processing, IoT support, base station hardware and placement and network architecture. The data and signal-processing track includes the topics: data formats, coding, modulations, multiplexing, media access, MIMO processing and synchronization. The IoT track contains the requirements for energy efficient operation modes in 5G: how to build your own IoT device, how to organize the connection to 5G networks, how to optimize power consumption, how to use the IoT in a practical situations. The track on base station hardware and placement focusses on the possible hardware solutions for processing, physical layer and antennae's. The main propagation and interference issues are reviewed. The network architecture track will present the equipment requirements for building the networks, software-defined networking (SDN) and cloud or centralized radio access networks (C-RAN). Examples and NS3 models are presented.
2 - Routing&Switching course covers the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in a different types of networks. Students learn how to configure a router and a switch for basic and advanced functionality. You will know how to model routing and switching in Network Simulator 3.
By the end of the course, students will be able to:
• Determine how a router will forward traffic based on the contents of a routing table.
• Explain how switching operates in a small to medium-sized business network.
• Use monitoring tools and network management protocols to troubleshoot data networks.
• Configure and troubleshoot routers and switches.
• Resolve common issues with OSPF, EIGRP, and STP in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks.
In addition, you could take on demand courses: integrated circuits topology design, patenting in Russia, doing business in Russia, FPGA programming, Space Communication, MaNet, IoT, Artificial intelligent etc.
