Laboratory of Telecommunications and Informatics 2

Course Description

Students gain practical knowledge through laboratory assignments. The laboratory assignments are designed to complement the material covered in theoretical courses, where the student selects two out of five offered courses. The courses and topics are as follows: Data management: database design based on entity-relationship model. Teletraffic theory: event driven simulation, building network testbed, creation of simulated network environment and analysis of different individual traffic flows with guaranteed and best-effort services. Multimedia communications: coding formats, content synchronization, quality of presentation, multi-user multimedia applications, quality of service in Internet. Telecommunication network reliability: analytical and simulation methods for reliability evaluation of redundant structures protection/restoration in optical transmission networks, modelling and evaluation of software reliability. Formal methods in system design: automated theorem proving, hardware verification, formal verification of synchronization and communication protocols. Case studies.

General Competencies

In-depth understanding of the principles and theoretical background of teletrafic theory, multimedia communication, telecommunication system reliability and formal methods in system design, required for solving engineering problems in the area of telecommunication and informatics. Ability to design and conduct analytic, modeling, simulation and experimental investigation. Ability to design solutions to problems that are unfamiliar, incompletely defined, and have competing specifications. Ability to formulate the problem and criticaly evaluate the solution. Practical experience with design, implementation, and deployment of information and communication systems.
