From IEEE 802.11n to 802.11ac and ad

Course Description

This course focus is on the VHT-related enhancements which the IEEE specified in the 802.11ac extension of the WLAN / WiFi standard series. However, the course also explains the specifics of 802.11 ad and the differences between these two amendments. Starting out with a primer on "before ac", the course initially focuses on 802.11 operation with respect to channel access and resource sharing. Namely the different channel access functions DCF, PCF, EDCA and HCCA are dealt with in detail and their differences and specifics are pointed out. During this part, the course also repeats the most important other characteristics of the OFDM-PHY and the MAC-layer. This includes a detailed consideration as to how QoS may be enabled in 802.11. The following chapter starts with an overview of the different groups of features which are added by the "ac"-extension of the standard. This chapter concludes with the "live"-calculation of the ac-related performance figures under different circumstances (e.g. modulation scheme, channelization). After this, the course focuses on the description and discussion of smart antenna techniques, namely SU-MIMO (up to 8 streams), MU-MIMO, and beamforming with ECFB as defined for 802.11ac. The students will learn without needing any mathematical formulas, how these techniques work and how they are applied in 802.11ac.
