Description: Mobile Multimedia Internet has emerged as a powerful paradigm which is transforming the way services are delivered to end users. Though there does not exist a standard definition of what constitutes a Mobile Multimedia Internet. There is no standard definition of what constitutes Mobile Multimedia Internet, we stipulate that the Mobile Multimedia Internet is one that facilitates the convergence of various wireless networks and protocols, particularly in 5G and beyond.

Mobile Multimedia Internet stands at the confluence of several evolving disciplines – the evolving wireless networks of 5G and beyond, the advancing VoIP networks and protocols, architectures and protocols for mobility management in wireless and IP networks, and architectures for service delivery, not to mention the evolution in technology including high speed optical backbones, increasing processing power, and special purpose routers and switches. The Mobile Multimedia Internet would allow the users to carry with them complete services from the ‘home service provider’ to another ‘visiting service provider,’ the service provider serving the location to which that user migrates. The advent of Mobile Multimedia Internet has also opened immense opportunities for possible applications and service based on data analytics.

Motivation: The course covers the various aspects comprising Mobile Multimedia Internet as a convergence between wireless and Internet in respect to the underlying relevant technologies. The course would help PhD students to gain enough expertise in this emerging and rapidly evolving discipline, and find ample opportunities for carrying out further research and knowledge enhancement.

Mode of teaching: It would comprise of a series of lectures progressing from the relevant introduction and background to the current and possible future niche areas within Mobile Multimedia Internet. The lectures would be supplemented with in-class exercises. In addition there would be an end of the course short assignment for the students.
