600.647 - Advanced Topics in
Wireless Networks, Spring 08
This class will survey current research in
wireless communication networks. These types of networks have been growing
exponentially in the past several years and include a host of different network
types: ad hoc, cell phone, access point, sensor, etc. The class will build
understanding of all layers of wireless networking and the interactions between
them (including: physical, data link, medium access control, routing,
transport, and application). The topics of security, energy efficiency,
mobility, scalability, and their unique characteristics in wireless networks
will be discussed.
The class will be composed of two parts. In the first part, several different
lecturers (including guests from outside of JHU) will provide an introduction
to the field. The second part will be structured as a research seminar
consisting of class discussions of research papers. Prerequisites: 600.344/444
[Algorithms, Systems or Analysis],
Every week we will discuss couple of research papers
which are related to our class lecture. The papers will be posted here on the
website. Please read these papers carefully and be prepared to discuss them

Daily Wireless is a web blog related to wireless communication technologies.
is your complete guide to the world of networking products based on
the various 802.11 wireless networking protocols (collectively known as Wi-Fi). With daily news, features, reviews, and
tutorials, Wi-Fi Planet covers all areas of the
rapidly changing wireless LAN universe.
Linux Devices.com is an
independent, embedded-oriented, online meeting place and technical news
site for the Embedded Linux developer community. The focus of the site is
to advance the use of the Linux operating system within devices and
embedded systems while educating developers about Embedded Linux
technologies. Editorial content features coverage of what's happening and
what's upcoming in software, hardware, platforms, tools, and design
efforts that affect the Embedded Linux community.
Mini-box.com is the designer and
manufacturer of the WRAP-BOX, a
professional die-cast aluminum WIFI WRAP enclosure for outdoor
an online community that connects people through networks of friends.
A9.com --- The most powerful technology A9.com
invented for Yellow Pages is Block View, which brings the Yellow Pages to
life by showing a street view of millions of businesses and their
surroundings. Using trucks equipped with digital cameras, global
positioning system (GPS) receivers, and proprietary software and
hardware, A9.com drove tens of thousands of miles capturing images and
matching them with businesses and the way they look from the street.
Skype.com is a free Internet telephony
application that runs on Windows, Linux, and OSX.
VoIP Info.org covers
everything related to VoIP, software, hardware,
service providers, reviews, configurations, standards, tips & tricks

Kismet is an 802.11 layer2
wireless network detector, sniffer, and
intrusion detection system. Kismet will work with any wireless card which
supports raw monitoring (rfmon) mode, and can
sniff 802.11b, 802.11a, and 802.11g traffic. Kismet identifies networks
by passively collecting packets and detecting standard named networks,
detecting (and given time, decloaking) hidden
networks, and inferring the presence of non-beaconing networks via data
Host AP is a Linux driver for
wireless LAN cards based on Intersil's
Prism2/2.5/3 chipset. The driver supports a so called Host AP mode, i.e.,
it takes care of IEEE 802.11
management functions in the host computer and acts as an access point.
