Hörby is located in the Electrum building on the 4th floor near

IK2555 Wireless and Mobile Network Architectures is a 7.5
point course designed for advanced undergraduates and graduate
students; especially those in the Telecommunication Graduate Program
or the International Masters Wireless program.
Advanced undergraduates should have completed the course IK1550
(Internetworking) or Advanced Internetworking or an
equivalent course. Students without one of these courses should
obtain permission of the instructor.
Information is available on:
This course will give both practical and general knowledge
concerning wireless and mobile network architectures. After this
course you should have some knowledge of these architectures and
understand the basic priciples behind them.
Following this course a student should be able to:
- Understand the architecture of existing mobile and wireless networks
at a sufficient level to recognize the common features of such
networks in any mobile or wireless network.
- Based upon recognition of common features, the student
should be able to compare and contrast one network architecture with
- Describe differences between different types of mobility (such as
user mobile, terminal mobility, session mobility) and understand how
each type of mobility can be supported.
- Understand the core network protocols and applications in third
generation mobile networks.
- Read the current literature at the level of conference papers in this area.
- While you may not be able to understand all of the papers in
journals, magazines, and conferences in this area - you
should be able to read 90% or more of them
and have good comprehension. In this area it is especially
important that develop a habit of reading the journals, trade papers,
etc. In addition, you should also be aware of both standardization
activities, new products/services, and public policy in the area.
- Demonstrate knowledge of this area both orally and in writing.
- By writing a paper suitable for submission
to conferences and journals in the area.
This course should prepare you for starting an exjobb in this area (for
undergraduate students) or beginning a thesis or dissertation (for
- Telesys, gk or Datorkommunikation och datornät/Data and Computer Communications or
equivalent knowledge in Computer Communications; Internetworking;
and permission of the instructor
Students considering participating in this course should contact
This course will focus on the network architectures that are
used in wireless and mobile networks. In some cases we will dig deeper into
the protocols used by such networks. The course should give both practical and
more general knowledge concerning the these network architectures.
The course consists of 10 hours of lectures, and an assigned paper
requiring roughly 50h of work by each student.
- An assigned paper requiring roughly 50h of work by each student
- Registration: Saturday 12-Feb-11, to email@example.com
with the "Subject: IK2555 topics" giving:
- Group members, leader.
- Topic selected
- Written report
- The length of the final report should be ~10 pages (roughly
5,000 words) for each student; it should not be longer
than 12 pages for each student - papers which are longer than 12
pages per student will be graded as "F".
- The paper style should be that of a conference paper.
- Papers should not focus on physical and link layer issues as
this is not a course in radio communication systems, but rather
the papers should look at things which have an impact on the
architecture or upon which the architecture has an effect.
- If there are multiple students in a project group, the
report may be in the form of a collections of papers,
with each paper suitable for submission to a conference or journal.
- Contribution by each member of the group - must be clear (in
the case where the report is a collection of papers - the role
of each member of the group can be explain in the overall
introduction to the papers.
- The report should clearly describe: 1) what you have done;
2) who did what; if you have done some implementation and
measurements you should describe the methods and tools used,
along with the test or implementation results, and your
- Each final report should include an extra page (which does
not count in the length of your report) with a one
paragraph summary of each of your two reviewers' comments and a
paragraph in response to each of these paragraphs. You should
identify each reviewer by name and indicate their e-mail address.
- Final Report: written report due Saturday 12-Mar-11 at 23:59 + oral
presentations scheduled during week 11 (14-18 March 2011) at
a locaton to be announced.
- Send email with URL link to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Late assignments will not be accepted. Papers which
are submitted after the deadline will be graded, but the grading
might not be completed before the end of the term.
- Note that it is pemissible to start working well in advance of the deadlines!
- Language: the report can be written in Swedish or English
(NB: I can provide better feedback if the report is written in English.)
- For your document, you should be sure to use A4
sized paper rather than US letter.
- For those using LaTeX, you can improve the look of the document by:
- switching to using PostScipt fonts
- You can also turn off hyphenation or at least limit its use
with "\hyphenpenalty=5000 \tolerance=1000"
- Gilles Bertrand has some nice
LaTeX tutorials, for
example how to draw
using the xy package
- Oral presentations: Each group should present their results in
15 minutes or less. The presentation should not be more
than 15 minutes, given the 20 minute timeslot this gives time for a
couple questions and changing presenters. if there are multiple days
of presentations, you only need to attend the day you present.
For new ECTS grading:
- To get an "A" you need to write an outstanding or excellent paper and give an outstanding or excellent oral presentation. (Note that at least one of these needs to be excellent.)
- To get a "B" you need to write a very good paper, i.e., it should be either a very good review or present a new idea; and you have to give a very good oral presentation.
- To get a "C" you need to write a paper which shows that you
understand the basic ideas underlying mobile and wireless networks and
that you understand one (or more) particular aspects at the level of
an average masters student. In addition, you must be able to present
the results of your paper in a clear, concise, and professional manner
- and answer questions (as would be expected at a typical
international conference in this area.)
- To get a "D" you need to demonstrate that you understand the basic
ideas underlying mobile and wireless networks, however, your depth of
knowledge is shallow and you are unable to orally answer indepth
questions on the topic of your paper.
- If your paper has some errors (including incomplete references) or
you are unable to answer any indepth questions following your oral
presentation the grade will be an "E".
- If your paper has serious errors or you are unable to answer basic
questions following your oral presentation the grade will be an
- If your paper or oral presentation are close to passing, but not
at the passing level, then you will be offered the opportunity for
"komplettering", i.e., students whose written paper does not pass can
submit a revised version of their paper (or a completely new paper) -
which will be evaluated; similarly students whose oral presentation is
unacceptable may be offered a second opportunity to give their oral
presentation. If a student fails the second oral presentation, they
must submit a new paper on a new topic in order to give an oral
presentation on this new topic.

Some common flaws in reports
- Incomplete references
- Missing important citations
- Statements made without justification or supporting citations
- Poor (or no) editing
- Failure to spell check the document
- Documents which it is clear that no one looked at after formatting
- often these have breaks in the middle of sentences, missing phrases,
- Lack of page numbers
- Unreadable text in figures
- Failure to label elements of figures adequately
- Use of contractions
- Use of acronyms or abbreviations without properly introducing
them; often failure to use these acroynms and abbreviations
consistently through the rest of the paper
- Redundant text
- Using figures from others without the copyright owner's permission
- Using too few refences, so the paper looks like simply a cut an
paste edit of these references.
- Single sentence paragraphs
- Lack of vertical white space between paragraphs, which in some
cases makes it hard to understand where new paragraphs begin
- Lack of a date - every document should have a date, in addition to title and author(s)
- Lack of section, subsection, ... number - makes cross references difficult
