Course Code: ISSC343 Course ID: 4671 Credit Hours: 3 Level: Undergraduate

This course offers a framework for learning the latest developments and trends in ad-hoc wireless and mobile communications. The course provides a complete coverage of the wireless ad-hoc networks: principles, protocols and applications. The course will look at the characteristics and operations of contemporary ad-hoc wireless network technologies. Students will study the impact of wireless transmission and user mobility with an emphasis on the design and management of ad-hoc wireless mobile systems. Students must have access to MS Visio software. Course software requirements with the appropriate versions are listed under the course materials site. This course meets the topical requirements of the DoD Directive 8570.1M Information Assurance Management (IAM) Technical I category.
