Από τις Φρυκτωρίες στα Ασύρματα Δίκτυα 5G

Στην αρχή θα παρουσιαστεί το θεμελιώδες μοντέλο επικοινωνίας Shannon-Weaver και στη συνέχεια θα γίνει μια ιστορική αναδρομή για την εξέλιξη της επικοινωνίας, από την εποχή των Φρυκτωριών στην αρχαία Ελλάδα έως τα ασύρματα δίκτυα 5G and Beyond. Θα αναφερθούν και θα συζητηθούν οι βασικοί σταθμοί σε αυτή τη διαδρομή καθώς και το πως οι τηλεπικοινωνίες άλλαξαν τον σύγχρονο κόσμο.
