The subject discusses telecommunication networks from different perspectives - physical principles, structure, applications, etc. Students are introduced to elementary concepts and principles in the area of communications. The presented principles and methods are illustrated using examples of specific communication networks - ISDN, data transmission networks, fixed as well as mobile ones. Emphasis is put on applications related to power lines.

Study targets:

Students will get familiar with the basic principles of communication and its technical principles at all levels, from signal transmission in specific physical environments to the services provided in electronic communication networks, including standardization, legislation and organizational measures, with emphasis on applications for power distribution and its control.

Course outlines:

1. Telephone channel, voice signal processing, Frame E1.
2. Backbone transmission systems and networks.
3. PDH, SDH, OTH transmission systems.
4. Architecture of digital switching systems, subscribers lines, ISDN. 5. Switching networks type S and T, signaling. 6. Synchronisation in networks, distribution of clocks in networks, creation of slips.
7. Next generation network (NGN).
8. Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM), TCP/IP networks.
9. Technology VoIP. Session Initiation Protocol (SIP). Quality of service (QoS).
10. Generation of mobile networks.
11. Basic principles of communication and signaling in mobile networks.
12. Access networks, types and features.
13. Digital Subscribe Line (xDSL) systems and their applications.
14. Wireless access networks.

Exercises outline:

1. Introduction. Content of practices. Requirements to obtain the credit. 2. Counting with logarithms and description of transmission chains (I).
3. Counting with logarithms and description of transmission chains (II). Assignment of seminar projects.
4. Lab. task 1 (Configuration of interconnection and synchronisation in network).
5. Lab. task 2 (Measurement on PBX).
6. Lab. task 3 (Analyses of subscriber line). 7. Lab. task 4 (Analyses of TCP/IP protocols). 8. Lab. task 5 (Voice over IP networks). 9. Network simulators used in telecommunication networks (I).
10. Network simulators used in telecommunication networks (II).
11. Presentation of seminar projects, check of elaborated tasks (I). 12. Presentation of seminar projects, check of elaborated tasks (II). 13. Excursion into Research and Development Centre (RDC).
14. Credit.
