  • Students can highlight the particularities of wireless mobile communication systems and the challenges and concepts.
  • They interpret and follow current research activities and technology trends.
  • They can systematically design and evaluate protocols for mobile communication systems and their applications.
  • They can design, implement, and operate real-time applications based on wireless communication networks.
  • They can analyze technical requirements for mobile radio systems and components and choose solutions.
  • They can carry out diagnoses, tests and optimizations of wireless networked mobile communication systems.
  • The students are able to name the most important archiectures for distributed systems, explain them, and compare them to each other.
  • For each architecture, they know the most prominent and important implementation platforms and basically know how to use them.
  • For a given problem, they can analyze which architecture is best suited to solve it, and they can design a plan for the solution's realization.
