    Abstract
    In recent years the converging digital technologies of television, publishing, telephony and computers, and the so-called multimedia revolution have prompted the deployment of a multitude of high-speed applications from streaming video to the World Wide Web to desktop video editing. An immediate impact of this evolution is the ever-increasing demand for Internet bandwidth, the more intelligent use of already available resources, and the use of overlay networks in the home. Because of the emergence of the home networks, the nature of networking itself is changing dramatically. It is moving away from supporting mainly home business and education applications and into the infotainment world where video and audio are now predominant and IPTV is emerging as the “killer app”. This module will review the Home Networking standards from transmission, like the popular 802.11 wireless, to middleware like OCAP or MHP. It will of course review the important IP protocols, like those related to Quality of Service, that make Home Networking and IP based entertainment possible.

    Abstract
    The IEEE802.11n standard will enable a new class of consumer and enterprise products utilizing wireless LAN connectivity that is ten times faster than is feasible with the current IEEE802.11a/b/g standards. This tutorial will provide a comprehensive overview of the Media Access Control (MAC) Layer defined in the p802.11n draft standard. The 802.11n MAC tutorial is a companion to the 802.11n PHY tutorial although familiarity with the PHY tutorial is not required for this tutorial.

    The tutorial begins with an overview of the applications, environments, channel models, use cases, and usage models developed by the study group and task group which provided the framework for proposal development. We continue with a history of the various coalitions that ultimately led to the final joint proposal adopted as the draft standard. This part of the tutorial contains similar information to the PHY tutorial and is repeated in a truncated form for the benefit of participants who may not view the PHY tutorial.

    The technical portion of the tutorial begins with an overview of why changes are needed in the MAC to achieve high throughput. The tutorial then covers the major features that improve MAC efficiency, including aggregation and the various modifications made to the block acknowledgment protocol.

    The 802.11n amendment introduces 40MHz operation, new frame formats and reduced interframe spacing among other things. The tutorial goes on to describe the features that support coexistence and interoperability with legacy devices as well as among the various capability classes of 802.11n devices.

    Finally the tutorial covers some of the more advanced features added to the standard, including the reverse direction protocol, fast link adaptation and transmit beamforming.

    Abstract
    The IEEE 802.11 market has seen spectacular growth over the past few years, and this growth is continuing at unprecedented rates. IEEE 802.11 technology has had a profound impact on the way consumers work, and on their leisure activities. Growing from cottage industry to a mainstream market across multiple segments, IEEE 802.11 products have become increasingly sophisticated, moving beyond traditional internet connectivity to include phones, cameras, gaming systems and even televisions.

    As IEEE 802.11 technology has advanced and the industry has matured, the testing methodologies continue to advance as well. Early testing methodologies primarily focused on whether or not two products could exchange data and seamlessly inter-operate. In response to both the wireless industry’s need to perform advanced product testing and consumer demand for high quality IEEE 802.11 devices, a new testing specification, IEEE 802.11.2, is being developed by the IEEE 802.11 Task Group T. IEEE 802.11.2 incorporates test methods and metrics for roaming, voice and video quality, power consumption, throughput performance and other important parameters.

    These advances in test methodology are required to improve the quality of IEEE 802.11 solutions and enable reduction in design cycles. Voice applications, for example, have pushed the IEEE 802.11 industry to specify several new protocols including IEEE 802.11r fast roaming, IEEE 802.11e quality of Service (QoS) and power-save. New applications that carry both voice and video over IEEE 802.11 have stringent performance requirements that can only be guaranteed by thorough and methodical testing.

    This tutorial will provide an in-depth look at the performance requirements of the demanding voice and video applications. We will examine how these applications perform today and will look at the improvements offered by the emerging IEEE 802.11n standard. We will discuss performance, security and power conservation issues in the context of mesh network architecture being introduced by the emerging IEEE 802.11s specification.

    Finally, we will examine the test methods and metrics currently in the IEEE 802.11.2 recommended practices document and will discuss performance verification methodology appropriate for a variety of networks and applications.

    Abstract
    The following course is in this bundle: Software Architecture and Design. This tutorial is part of a series of eLearning courses designed to help you prepare for the examination to become a Certified Software Development Professional (CSDP) or to learn more about specific software engineering topics. Courses in this series address one or more of the fifteen Knowledge Areas that comprise the Software Engineering Body of Knowledge - or SWEBOK, upon which the Certification Exam is based. Within each course module, there is a list of textbooks, courses and relevant reference materials to assist you in preparing for the Certification Exam.

    Design is defined in [IEEE610.12.90] as both the "process of defining the architecture, components, interfaces and other characteristics of a system or component and the result for [that] process." Viewed as a process, software design is the software engineering life cycle activity in which software requirements are analyzed in order to produce a description of the software's internal structure that will serve as the basis for its construction. More precisely, a software design (the result) must describe the software architecture - that is, how software is decomposed and organized into components and the interfaces between those components. It must also describe the components at a level of detail that enables their construction.

    This course is intended to assess your understanding of software design through inline quizzes and feedback. Specific topics addressed in this course are: fundamentals of software design, key issues in software design, software structure and architecture, human computer interface design, software design quality analysis and evaluation, software design notations and software design strategies and methods.

    The topic of this tutorial is Software Configuration Management. A system can be defined as a collection of components organized to accomplish a specific function or set of functions (IEEE610.12-90). The configuration of a system is the functional and/or physical characteristics of hardware, firmware, software or a combination of these, as set forth in technical documentation and achieved in a product. It can also be thought of as a collection of specific versions of hardware, firmware or software items combined according to specific build procedures to serve a particular purpose. Configuration Management (CM) then, is the discipline of identifying the configuration of a system at distinct points in time for the purpose of systematically controlling changes to the configuration, and maintaining the integrity and traceability of the configuration throughout the system life cycle.

    This tutorial is intended to assess your understanding of software configuration management through inline quizzes and feedback. Specific topics addressed in this course are: management of the SCM process, software configuration and control, software configuration status accounting, software configuration auditing, software release management and delivery, and software configuration management tools.

    Abstract

    This tutorial traces UWB technology through history, regulations, standards, system implementations and commercial applications. Methods of generating and modulating UWB signals are described and set in the context of UWB proposals for IEEE802 Standards. UWB antenna, radiation, and propagation phenomena, including unique behavior in multipath are presented in contrast with narrow band radio. Examples of UWB link margins including data throughput versus range and system data capacity (up to 2 Gb/s) are compared with conventional and much higher power 802.11a/b systems. The future of UWB is a mix of wireless communications, precision positioning and radar. UWB can enable an accurate indoor adjunct to GPS with centimeter accuracy. Discussions of applications show that UWB capabilities make possible delivery of location-specific content and information, tracking of high value assets, security systems and various automotive and interesting home based "location awareness" systems.
