Professor Sergio Benedetto and Professor Guido Montorsi, Politecnico di Torino, Italy are teching this 5-day course, which is focusing on techniques to reliably communicate digital information over wireless channels. The course provides theoretical and practical (with computer sessions) knowledge about iterative techniques applied to new telecommunication standards.
Wireless communication systems were initially designed primarily for voice services. The explosion of Internet usage, with the ever increasing demand for the downloading of large bulks of data in multimedia services made 2G cellular systems fully inadequate. For this reason, 3G and even more 4G were designed to focus on multimedia rather than voice services. The resulting, high data rates that are needed to satisfy the users' requests, together with the severe limitations in the available bandwidth devoted to cellular services, force wireless communication systems to face ever increasing challenges on severe bandwidth and energy constraints.
The present and future of wireless communications is then dependent on the possibility of fully exploiting the available bandwidth by increasing as much as possible the efficiency of its use. Moreover, the time-varying characteristics of the wireless channel, and its frequency selectivity induced by the multipath fading, pose severe challenges to the system designer in order to cope with the high quality of service required for multimedia applications. Very recent tools like adaptive coding and modulation, multi-antenna transmitter and receiver (MIMO), turbo and LDPC codes, iterative co-decoding and reception techniques based on the turbo principle are revolutionizing the theory and practice of digital communication.
