Smartphones are one of the most influential devices that we use in our everyday lives. Smartphones consist of the most advanced hardware and software technologies that exist in the world, all combined together into a miraculous single easy-to-use portable system. These lectures focus on the specifications, hardware modules, and OS (Operating System) iOS & Android that enable smartphones to perform various features and functionalities. Since there are so many smartphone types, in the lectures, three smartphones were selected and compared. The lecture covers the specifications of the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, LG G4, and the iPhone 6 plus, which are among the most popular recently released smartphones in the world! With this new knowledge on Cellular Networks, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Platform, OS (Operating System), Chipsets, CPU (Central Processing Unit), GPU (Graphics Processing Unit), Display, Location & Navigation system, and new Wireless Charging systems, you will be able to analyze, design, and plan new smartphones for the future.

You have most likely heard about Clouds and Big Data before, and already know how significantly important they are and will be in the future. Cloud Computing enables us to easily use software as well as processing platforms and computing infrastructure (that are not equipped on our computers and smartphones) from any location through Internet services. Big Data provides us with new intelligence from massive data sets, which can help in situation/condition/status analysis and decision making. In addition, CDN is the best technology to provide information/contents to Internet users in the quickest and most efficient way. Therefore, the information/software/database/contents from Clouds and Big Data centers can be very effectively supported by CDNs. This is why these lectures are combined together in this course.

Every information service is connected through the Internet. If your work is any bit related to information, there is no excuse, you have to know what the Internet is and how it works! The relation of information and the Internet is equivalent to the blood and blood vessels of our body, which we have been using and will be using every day of our lives. This course will enlighten your understanding of what the Internet is and how it works. IP (Internet Protocol) IPv4 and IPv6 keep the Internet alive by enabling remote computers to communicate through various inter-connected networks through “inter-networking” technology, which is where the name “Internet” came from. TCP and UDP are used by the end devices (e.g., computers, smartphones, servers, clouds) that are communicating to connect applications/services across the Internet. The details of IPv4, IPv6, TCP, UDP, and Internet operations are covered in this course.

What is the Internet of Things? What is augmented reality? This course deals with the new emerging technologies of IoT (Internet of Things) and AR (Augmented Reality). IoT is a new emerging technology domain which will be used to connect all objects through the Internet for remote sensing and control. IoT uses a combination of WSN (Wireless Sensor Network), M2M (Machine to Machine), robotics, wireless networking, Internet technologies, and Smart Devices. AR is the most effective technology in providing real-time and real-world view information to users, where advancements in Smart Devices are expected to trigger various new AR services. Currently, IoT and AR technologies already exist and available services can be found. However, there is so much more to come in IoT and AR technologies, which is why it is so important to understand what can be provided through these technologies and how these technologies work.

This course covers the services and specifications of the most popular wireless communication technologies used around the world. The most popular wireless communication technologies are mobile communication, WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network), and WPAN (Wireless Personal Area Network), which are all included in smartphones. Among WLAN types Wi-Fi is most popular, and among WPAN types Bluetooth is most popular. Therefore, the lectures in this course cover Wi-Fi and Bluetooth specifications. In addition, the evolution of mobile communication technologies is explained starting from the 1st generation (1G) all the way to the most advanced 4th generation (4G) systems. In addition, further details on the state-of-the-art LTE (Long Term Evolution) and LTE-Advanced 4G mobile communication technologies are presented.
