High Speed Communication Networks
Experience in modeling, analyzing and designing of high-speed networks. Fundamental knowledge on data transmission analysis in access networks, and fundamental knowledge on techniques forr multiple access to communication channels.
- recognize different levels of communication networks
- reproduce cgharacteristics of high-speed network technologies
- apply channel models to determine transmission performnces
- analyze signal transmission through communication channels
- create models of access networks and channels
- compute performnces of multiple access to communication channels
Forms of Teaching
First cycle (seven weeks): lectures, then Midterm exam, and Second cycle (six weeks): lectures, then Final exam. Two hours of lectures per week.Exams
Midterm exam: after 7 weeks of lectures; Final exam: after 6 weeks of lectures.Consultations
Lecturer defines fixed terms for consultations. Arrangement for consultations in other terms is possible via e-mail.Other Forms of Group and Self Study
Students can voluntarily process some interesting themes related to a course and present them in brief during lectures.
