Completion Graded Assessment
Language of teaching Czech
Extent of teaching 2P + 2L
The course introduces principles and functions of digital telecommunications systems, both transmission and switching systems as well as converged packet-oriented systems interconnected into universal telecommunication networks.
Study targets
The course will allow students to understand the principles of large telecommunication networks, particularities of access and backbone networks as well as fixed and mobile systems. After completing the course, students will be knowledgeable in telecommunication technologies and networks and they will be able to solve partial problems related with the operation of currently used technologies.
