2.Briefly discuss the purpose of the passive repeater in this system? (3 marks)
Question 2: Innovative Project (8 marks)
A local engineering group ask you to present your finding of the most recent advanced wireless technologies. Research these technologies in details and pay specific attention to (one of them) and discuss how they are used, their application in real life, their strengths and weakness and security issues. Also provide an opinion regarding which antenna types will become the dominant players in the future. For this assessment item you need to work in a team of two/three, find your partner and run group meetings, and prepare power point slides (10 -15 slides).
