Queueing Theory - B2M32THOA

Main course
Credits 6
Semesters Winter
Completion Assessment + Examination
Language of teaching Czech
Extent of teaching 3P + 1L
The aim of the course is to present an overview of dimensioning of telecommunication networks on the basis of results of the queuing theory (QT) and to introduce possibilities of simulation and modelling of networks, both from the point of view of grade of service (GoS) and quality of service (QoS). Results of the QT are applied on different service systems and telecommunication networks being currently operated and developed. Theoretical knowledge about models of service systems can be applied on dimensioning of different service systems in real life - not only on the telecommunications one.
Study targets
The aim of the course is to get acquainted with dimensioning of telecommunications networks on the basis of results of the queuing theory (QT). The acquired knowledge will be applied in an individual project focused on dimensioning of a data network.
